    Thornton Lake - North Cascades National Park. Most strenuous hike ever. Worth it?

    always worth it to get out into the wilderness.

    with that said. I would have waited for more dramatic lighting.

    why are you asking us? you're the one who made the personal commitment to get this shot. do you think you succeeded? why? do you think you failed? why?

    the middle seems a little weird.

    I'd do it, though I'd probably have to stop a lot along the way. Great picture!

    Great shot. I think it's totally worth it, but I like hiking.

    I want to make it out to the Pacific Northwest one day.

    I like it. It reminds me of this huge 3 panel piece that I saw a guy selling at an art fair once. It was 3 panels that were each about 3'x2'. He wasnt there so I couldnt ask where it was taken but it was gorgeous. Detail was amazing.

    Only complaint is the haloing between mountain and sky on the top left.

    Of course it was worth it. I finally got to use my GND filters that have been sitting around for so long.

    Yes. Not sure what you see in the middle.


    Pretty much :hs: 6 hour drive, 6 hour roundtrip hike, 2 hours to Seattle where I took some pics of the skyline, then 3 hours home.

    Do you have more photos from the hike? I may head up there in a couple weeks.

    I always want to take my camera with me when I go mountain biking. You see some great views on the trails, but Im scared of falling and breaking my camera. It gets pretty dust too.

    Looks good.

    Just to be picky- too strong/much shadows. Fix it during processing.
