Mazama's Leftovers

It's been nearly a month since my last post...once again. I have been pretty busy with searching for a new job, taking care of a few photo sales (Whoopee!), and spending practically every weekend out shooting! I have quite a few shots to share with you folks and I'm really REALLY looking forward to getting caught up on all your streams! Thanks in advance for your comments.


This is sunrise out at Crater Lake. This was taken the weekend after we had the coldest temperatures of 2010 in the Northwest thus far...Crater Lake received 15 inches of fresh snow. My buddy and I went snowshoeing East a mile and a half or so along the rim for sunset, then West along the rim to Discovery Point for Sunrise. Conditions were amazing to say the least! This was my first time to our state's only national park and will most definitely not be the last. I loved visiting this place.




UPDATE: I know a few of you know...this shot was chosen as an honorable mention in Outdoor Photographer Magazine's Nature's Colors contest. Thought I would share that with you and move this shot to the front of my stream. I'm pretty stoked :-) Congrats to the winners!
