    High Mountain Lake

    This weekend was Seafair hear in Seattle. Those not familar, it is the Hydroplane Boat races. While a great thing to shoot...it is the largest happening all year here. I thought about shooting it but decided I did not want to barve the crowds. Great time to head to the mountains with everyone in town!

    This is one of the High lakes I found. The light was rather harsh all day with no clouds and 91 degrees. I think the challenge was half the fun.
    C&C always welcome.

    Lovely lake and nice images. I'd love to be out on that lake using a float tube with a fly rod fishing for trout!

    Thanks Richard, you and me both. The trout were eating off the surface and there is a lot of room to cast even from shore. I was kicking myself for not bringing the rod.

    The second one is my favorite, Paul. My wife and I went on a hike (more like a walk, as we later determined) today in scenery, light and temperatures that were similar to yours. I wasn't inspired to capture images, so I applaud that you were.

    It always amazes me that reality can be as beautiful as the photos. When I was younger, I always assumed the pics were enhanced. Then I started visiting the different locals and was amazed a photographer could actually capture the beauty. Which you have. I feel like I could walk into any of your shots.

    You succeeded in capturing some beautiful lake scenes even with the harsh lighting. You made me wish I were there to see it for myself.

    I prefer numbers 1, 2 and 3. I know it is often good to show something in the immediate foreground to give a sense of place and scale, but in number 4 the tuft of grass is really bright and constantly pulls my eye toward it and away from the scene behind. I would shoot it more like you did in number 3.

    Thank you Jack, Ken and Chuck.

    Jack, you can keep that 100 degree stuff. =}

    Ken I agree about #4, I still like it but it is a bit bright, may have to work on that.

    Chuck, the only way it would have been more pleasent is if I had brought the fly-rod and stayed longer. =}
