What a fabulous hike. Hard as frak! But a great hike!
A few smaller “water” areas here, some great wild flowers, some of the steepest inclines I’ve done in a long while as well!
Just when you think “Okay I’ve had enough!” you come to a flatter area and you see this wicked lil view, but oh, it gets better!
After clambering down to take these, I knew I had to go around “the lake”. I had my snickers bar and started walking. Yup, it only got better.
There is a wicked dock (and a place you can stay apparently up above I caught a glimpse of it, but didn’t explore that area). A mom and a daughter were sitting there, having sandwiches and speaking, what I think, was Korean. Made me smile, reminded me what it is like for people who don’t speak french when I do it with folks I know.
One of MY fave pics – up above!
Driving up Mt Washington is super fun, and a little scary for someone who isn’t into heights and have bouts of vertigo.
Be ready for wind! And some of the most gorgeous views ever.
The problem with such views is no perspective at times, so things look flat and while gorgeous, lacks texture. So, that’s why the keys! and any other objects I can use to give things perspective as well as a break in the view.
It was a fun day, and again, windy!
The biggest problem I face is the crowds! Weekends are impossible to go anywhere, cars are lines along the highway for miles. And the days are growing shorter, so short hops to places are best!
Littleton is a fun little town, with a few places to take a decent picture
CHUTTERS! A huge store filled with: Candy
yes, look my keys!
And a few pictures from home. I love home. And my backyard.
The Flume! A pretty active day, and some great pics! No ND filters, but I managed with Fstops, long exposures and ISO
The area is gorgeous, and a lot of natural beauty.
The flowing water! ‘Nuff Said
I did a total of 5 miles on a Sunday
There is no way to take a good enough picture to show the massive walls of this place.
Of course, much to my wife’s chagrin, my keys showed up!
I ended up taking 300 photos, but editing about 80. Which is a good ratio.
I don’t go home every weekend, since when Julia works, I hardly see her. So this weekend I decided to go “riding” around. I hit up Ellsworth and a few other places, and of course, stopped to take pictures.
There are a few settings (the CA) one that I’m finally getting into – and many of the pictures come out like the above, almost oil painting like – I like it
As you can see, I was out “all” day. I must say, I’ll miss this area.
