    So a few friends and I decided to drive up to Lake Placid for the weekend. We camped out, slept like 2 hours and headed to Mt. Marcy but since the roads leading to it were closed (Ironman competitions going on), we went to Whiteface instead. It took like 4 1/2 hours to the top.

    2) I tried doing star trails but I gotta do it for longer next time (underexposed ground)

    3) Breakfast before we headed out

    4)My friend climbing, about 4 hours into it

    why such a big campfire? I really hope you were somewhere with low fire danger to be doing shit like that.

    6 is great but looks a little hazy? I've taken photos like that and the cause was forest fires about 30 miles away. Sometimes I've found a CP can help cut through it a bit. But I like the pic.

    Nah, the fire was pretty small but if you look closely my friend was shaking it up for the shot...he just looks like a blur. I don't have the data in front of me but it must've been over a second exposure to get the movement of the embers.


    Yeah, I had a CP on it still came out like that.

    Thanks for the comments, everyone. I also like #6 and #7 best.

    # Exposure Time (1 / Shutter Speed) = 16/10 second = 1.60000 second
    # Lens F-Number/F-Stop = 35/10 = F3.50 for that fire picture...

    Great pics, #6 & #7 rule. Makes me want to go camping, and actually sort of inspiring...:eek3:

    I liked the star trails too, the foreground gives the viewer something to grab onto as the stars move ahead.

    very nice. too bad about the noise on the long exposure stuff though. 6 and 7 are awesome. great view. don't know about the NY ball cap in number 6 though, kinda ruins it.

    ah ok im glad to hear about the fire. its a pet peeve of mine when people have giant fires, unless its a spot on private property then i dont mind so much.

    out west when in the mountains igniting a forest fire is a serious concern this time of year and i love my forests to much.

    those mountains look tame compared to the ones around here. do they offer much in the way of rockclimbing?

    As far as I know theres not much rock climbing. On the other side of the mountain there were a lot of vertical rock spots but we hiked the other trail.



    I used my Nikon D70s with the 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5 and a Hoya CP. I have the 50 1.8 and the 70-300 but I didn't see the need for them that day. My set-up is pretty basic but I do what I can with it.
