Great photo...

of one of my favorite places on the planet. I was also there during the fires this year and it created some interesting lighting. However, I wasn't real fond of all the ash falling on the tent and in the snowmelt.

Re: Great photo...

My wife and I stayed at Island lake on the 1st - 3rd, I looked at your Gannett trip report, we definitely have some of the same photos and probably exchanged a hello on the trail. You had way better weather on summit day than I did last year!

Re: Great photo...

We were there from the 31st - 3rd so I'm sure we crossed paths at some point. We're heading back next year for a more leisurely stay in Titcomb Basin...such a beautiful area.

Re: Incredible

Thanks Dave.
Are you going to try for the Big G. or Fremont? set aside as many days as you can, you'll hate to leave if the weather is at all decent!

Re: Incredible

No specifics yet on where were going, but the plan is 5-6 days to see as much as we can.

You really captured

the beauty of the place, Mister Ape!

The "Windys" are an incredible area that many
people tend to under-appreciate or ignore.

Outstanding composition!!!

Re: You really captured

Thanks Larry!
I've seen a hundred versions of the same photo from other people but cant resist shooting more of my own every time I'm there!

Really neat lighting

caused by the smoke. It makes the photos more unique. I love looking at that area, I must go soon.

Re: Really neat lighting

It's not really that far from Bakersfield but beware, once you've been there, you'll always want to be there..

is a very friendly photographer's tool. Love this part of the trail on the approach to the Titcomb Basin. Nicely documented.

Re: Smoke...

As you've probably noticed, I love to shoot a colorful sky but they're usually attached to an underexposed landscape. Maybe I'll give HDR a try. Thanks!
