Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

Craig :) It was really great fun to have met you "randomly" out on the Highline trail....and then all the fun stuff that happened later on. And now you brought even more of it in your post. I met Jake, the Scalplock fire lookout when I climbed Elk Mt.!! :D It was a real pleasure chatting with him up...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

I've been watching a lot of YouTube photographers the last few months. Some are very good and I've gotten many useful ideas from them. The young gal, Kim Grant, in this short clip from the end of one of her videos may not be the best photographer. However, I like her attitude as expressed in the cli...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

I always like the trails with the big panoramic views, BUT the first photo of the trail caught my eye. I’m no fan of hiking in the woods, however I liked the curvature of the trees, the bit of snow along the trail, and the contrast between the trail and the deep green foliage. One more thing, the t...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

Here is some video, using that term video very loosely, from my Huckleberry hike. My new phone sucks at making videos. I'll have to go back to carrying my old Sony camcorder. https://photos.smugmug.com/photos/i-NDj7R8h/0/6b961e8a/1920/i-NDj7R8h-1920.mp4 Here's another pano. When I get the other pano...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

I was thinking the snow covered peaks in the distance must look awesome, but not translate to an image well. Was it that obvious in something I said somewhere above? You're right though. The mountains, the whole scene was awesome to behold. There's something about these fantastic( a very poor adjec...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

Here are a few more pics from yesterday from Huckleberry Mt. Nothing epic, just some nice snaps :) The trail had bits of snow all the way to the trail head. The Huckleberry Mt trail is a really nice hiking trail albeit a long(ish) one. The elevation gain is modest all the way to within a 1/4 mile of...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

Pete, You have a lot of great pictures here. I like the aspens along the Polebridge Road. The aspens provide incredible contrast to the other colors. However, I really like your "practice" image of the pine tree and aspens. The detail is great. I particularly like the pine cones and pine needles in...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

I lied :D ...here's one pano from today that came out better than I expected. The only editing done to this image is a moderate "haze removal". That tends to increase the contrast in the sky and clouds. There's more that could be done to improve it. Too much haze removal(and I'm guilty of it) can ma...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

TnTammy your input I’m sure is appreciated by Pete. Believe me Michele, you have NO idea, none ...on how much I appreciate Tammy's kind words. :D You don’t have to know a lot about photography to enjoy good photographs. You have an artistic eye and have mentioned some of the best ones recently in t...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

Thank you Jay, Barb, Michele, Ken, and all you lurkers too.! I really do appreciate the support, especially on a chilly, dark morning. :) I'm all layered up, dosed with ibuprofen, and ready to get on up Huckleberry Mt. 12 miles RT and +- ~2700ft. is a long day anymore for me. Let's hope the weather ...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

This is an image I'm made to practice focus stacking using the Helicon Focus app. Photoshop is a pain in the ass--for me. Two images. One focused on the pine tree which was about 2-3 feet away from the camera, and one focused on the aspens about 100 yards away. The aspens were way out of focus on th...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

Jay, Michele, and Craig: Thanks, sometimes it's just f'ing annoying to "hear crickets" day after day after posting pics and information. That said, Y'all don't need to post something every time I put something up. And yeah Jay, you know how much is involved with photos. I've been trying to do a bett...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

Took this snapshot from the window of my truck on the way to McDonald Creek. You can see the smoke haze that has moved into the area over the last week or so. :( The cloud bank over the lake extended well up into the valley. https://photos.smugmug.com/photos/i-4dKVfSN/0/5321d175/XL/i-4dKVfSN-XL.jpg ...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

And I missed patching you up :D Yeah I could have used you LOL! I didn't have any steri-strips. Weird cut too. Looked like it was done with a scalpel, very thin sharp line. Bled like a merfer for a couple minutes until I could get those big band-aids on it. Here's a couple short video clips for ya....
