Real nice. Sell them as postcards! I have a week set aside for a trip later this month. I just need to figure out where I'd like to go.

Soft GND? Looks like Mount Goode. I recognize that red metamorphic geology with scatterd gabbro boulders atop one can see in the mid ground of your photo as along the trail there. I pointed my 4x5 at a similar small stream inlet with dense shooting star going into a pond with peak behind, last Saturday morning too. It was probably the weakest of 18 sheets I exposed during the trip because unlike your nice early morning image, I was passing through about 8:30am when granite and snowfields in the background were already questionably harsh. ...David

Nice shots Windwalker! One question on the second photo, is that
an orange tent in the middle at the start of the treeline?
The color is out of place (distracting) IMO.

David, Good eye...yes that is Mount Goode. I used a Singh-Ray 2 stop hard GND.

Cory- This was at Bishop Lakes just below Bishop Pass, the trail begins at South Lake.

Maverick, :nod: that is a tent....it is Ladyhiker's tent, I would have asked her to move it but she was still sleeping in it when this shot was taken. LOL!

Thanks everyone for your kind words!
