Mt Rainier and Olympic Coast

Discussion in 'Landscapes, Architecture, and Cityscapes' started by james thiel, Sep 10, 2005.

  1. I am still processing more from our outings from a couple of weeks ago. We had a nice wild flower season both at Mt Rainier and Hurricane Ridge on the Olympic Penninsula. The ocean shots were from a place called second beach which is pretty far north in Washington State. All shot with D2X and 18-35 lens.

    Some really fine shots, I like #3 best, and I think compositionally all are really very good, however, on your first image, there seems to be a lot of "dead" space or a lack of good wildflowers. Too much green, I would think about cropping off the bottom and try for a 2:1 ratio and print at a 10x20 image size. It would be a stunning vista I bet. The trees and sky and distant mountains are superb in that first shot.

    That is about all I can say except....WOW....

  5. Thanks all. Yes I totally agree with you Wade. The mountain is very nice but I was disappointed that the flowers were not around in this meadow area. I actually have a similar shot from this place in the fall and the colors are great. I think your suggestion about the crop is right on.

    I was lucky on the third shot to get the sun hitting the waves. I think it is what makes the shot work. Again thanks for your advice.

    Ooooh - that landscape looks so inviting. I can almost smell that mountain air just from these pictures.

    Is'nt it summer there - how come you have snow on your mountains ? (I guess it never melts maybe)

    Nice compositions.
