Yakima Peak

Anthony and I drove up to Tipsoo Lake last evening in hopes of getting the reflection of Mt. Rainier in the lake. Turns out it's not quite melted out enough yet so instead we shot Yakima Peak.


At 2 hours and 15 minutes, this will probably be the longest single exposure I ever take on a digital SLR. There is so much noise reduction going on that it starts to take away from the image. Also there was some heat noise on the left side of the image. I fiddled with it for a while to get it into postable condition and I'm still not satisfied.... but work calls, and I have a presentation today. That should be fun with no sleep ;-)
