Summertime Halcyon

    Taken Tuesday morning, August 17th at the beginning of the second day of the phototour with Marty.

    He was completely blown out of his socks when we got to Trillium.

      I love the idea to see somebody blown out of his socks!!
      This mount is just ....WOW.... you make us feel his powerful by this shot Gary! I've started to look at your shot by the up....the rocks and the snow....certainly so high that nothing else is possible....and when I look down I see appear forest, and finaly the Lake, and a little boat with a little man....
      Very nice lesson of humility....are we the guardians of the Earth or does the Earth is ours?

      I love this makes the mountain so much bigger than in your other shots. Very nice capture!

      Wonderful sense of scale with tghe mountain so large, and the boat so small....beautifully composed, Gary.

      Seen on my Flickr home page. (?)

      Now there is another angle of Mt. Hood and Trillium that I haven't seen before! Great job Gary! Keep mixin' it up! I like the guy on the boat in this shot. It adds something...

      The addition of the canoe is really cool, nice light!

      I finally got to go to Trillium and I can certainly understand why.. If I hadn't lived with the mountain, I would have been as well... I felt the awe that a mountain can bring the first time I saw Mt Rainier.. I had just arrived from Texas.. :-)

      Seen in my contacts' photos. (?)

      Damn, that deep blue and deep color saturation down low is sweet. The eyes are really guided through this shot, man. Excellent job, Gary. I need to visit...

      The canoe really makes this shot. Not that it wouldn't be good without it but it shows how big the lake and mountain really are. Super image!

      Il sogno che ho fin da bambino, e che ancora non sono riuscito a realizzare, è di fare un bel viaggio negli U.S.A, e ....poter visitare il nord-ovet , i grandi parchi, poter vivere le vostre grandi tradizioni!!
      Non so se riuscirò mai a realizzarlo ( ho una famiglia molto numerosa), ma; sicuramente le tue foto sono un gran dono.
      sorry !! no speak english

      Fantastic shot that really shows off the size of the mountain!

      Wow! What a wonderful use of compression with a telephoto. I LOVE how this shows the massive scale of Mt. Hood and her wilderness against the tiny human being in the canoe. It says so much, on so many levels. Absolutely stunning!
