It shows the complex geology of the area.
Thanks. Yes, the geology of the Wallowas is amazing.
Can I give it 11/10?
Thanks, I appreciate it.
Thanks Lolli. No it was taken with a simple 35 mm lens.
Thanks tazz. Yes, one can't spend too much time in the Wallowas.
Possibly the best image of the highest high Wallowas, insofar as conveying their massiveness, verticality, and the number of peaks in a tight area. A unique photo of a unique area.
I think the fact that you used a normal lens helps, most of us tend to grab the super wides or shorter telephotos, but you got it perfectly.
Thanks Don. I'm not much of a photographer, but have found if I take enough shots, occasionally one works out by accident. Such was the case with this one.
There is a recognized school of photography involved here. The Point, Push and Pray School. I too am a member. We should be respected, mixed metaphors about monkeys and typewriters be damned.
In the nineties I watched a professional photographer in the lake basin go through 12 or more rolls while I did 2 or three frames, not counting brackets. I think "pray" was a major factor, as the evening light we both were hoping for was shot -- the huges fires in the direction the Imnaha killed the light for scenics all week. So the big guys sometimes just shoot more. And thanks again for your vote on my first submisssion.
Tks for sharing it with us, tks for voting on mine.
My favorite part of the state...just doesn't look like they belong in Oregon. This is a great representation of the area.
The Wallowas are about the only place where I'm consciously ecstactic to be there every minute, whether its a few hours or several days. Thanks for the comment.
