Hike to the top of the Continental United States

  1. Last Sunday me and a group of friends hiked to the summit of Mount Whitney (14,505 ft). I carried my D50, 18-200 VR and Sigma 10-20 with a CPL. I changed lens only once and used the 18-200 about 95% of the time (I really appreciated this lens in a monumental hike like this). Here are a few pictures -

    These are drop-dead gorgeous images Ramesh!! Mind sharing some of the shooting details in terms of exposure, especially on the 18-200 shots? I really like the colors and the mood on 1 & 2.
  4. Beautifull shots! You'll have to frame the first.
  5. wonderful images and that is a real strenuous hike, well done
  6. My oh my, gorgeous only begins to describe it! Wish I can accomplish this hike once in my life - thanks a bunch for sharing!
  7. Great fun and great photos! Thanks for sharing.
  8. Thanks for the nice words, folks!

    Shekhar, most of the shooting info should be in the EXIF of the photo. I shot in Aperture Priority and used exposure compensation as needed. Used a CPL to darken the skies a bit.
  9. Excellent Ramesh. That is quite a hike, if I had gone up there I would need a Sherpa to help me. :smile:

    Beautiful images.
  10. Thanks Gordon.

    You look pretty young & fit in your picture, you would've made it easily ;)

    Nice Series....I like images like those at 20 x 30 or large, the scale is right for that size.
