    I downloaded Of Monsters and Men's album last night (My Head Is An Animal) and on it is a song that the group played during their recent concert in Portland. The song—Mountain Sound— is not one that I've been able to find anywhere else, so it's lovely to have it now. (Actually, you can now find it on Grooveshark.)

    And this is Silver Star Mountain again (it was a very productive trip for me), this time with a single human silhouette in the distance.

    Image made with a Hasselblad 500 C/M.

      I like the human figure in the distance, Danielle. The close focus on the flowers is great too. Very nicely done.

      I really love how that red just pops out of the frame. Nice depth in this view.

      I can only begin to imagine how wonderful that walk must have been.

      The intensity of the colors, here, is outstanding. What film are you using? Velvia? One thing I struggle to capture accurately with digital is green tones. Film, evidently, has no issue at all with this.

      beautiful photograph!
      and if the title is a reference to Mountain Sound by Of Monsters and Men, then i think this photo perfectly encapsules how the song makes me feel. if that makes any sense.

      beautifully made

      Of Monsters and Men! They're my new music obsession. Just discovered and I'm so in love with their music. This is so beautiful and peaceful. I love it.

      this place is TOTALLY on my list of places to visit this year- i've seen nothing but beautiful and colorful photos of the wildflowers and scenery. the red adds a nice pop of color but the lone barely there figure is perfect among the unfocused dark green conifers

      This is wonderful, Danielle. Beautifully composed--and I especially like the bokeh figure on the rock.

      Oh gosh, as if I didn't already love your photos, now you're pairing them with Of Monsters and Men lyrics?! I've been head over heels for them for months (I have a slight obsession with Iceland). You couldn't make this any more perfect.

      Yes, I adore them! Saw them in concert last month actually. Thanks!
