My 2010 Favorites: Travel
Finally! I’m caught up with year 2010 blogposts!! As a treat (and part of my new years resolution), for the next few posts I’ll be featuring my favorite photos! We’re going to start with my 2010 favorite Travel photos.
1. Mt. Adams from the top of Mt. St. Helens. I lugged my D700 up this mountain, with the sand and dust blowing harshly at me. That camera isn’t making it to the top of anymore mountains, unless it carries itself up in it’s own sand and dust proof bag.
2. Resurrection Bay from the shores of Seward, Alaska.
3. Shadows waving from the top of Mt. Tumalo. This was the trip where I experimented with Eric’s super fattie: the 14-24mm lens.
4. Walking along the shoulder of the Spit in Homer, Alaska, I found the urge to go with negative space.
5. Tern Lake, Alaska. I really liked how the sun was lighting up these blades, so I went with artistic.
6. Skilak Lake, Alaska. Driving and driving around looking for an access point to Skilak Lake for a sunset pic, we finally gave up until we came across a campground with a boat ramp access. The sun was pretty much all but gone, but I loved the blue tint everything was taking.
7. Crater Lake, Oregon. A girl dressed as a hotdog is jumping into the lake. No joke.
8. Sunset at Crater Lake, Oregon. The wind had picked up, so there was no reflection in the water, leaving the color to the sky.
9. Red Sky in a Crater Lake sunset. Thanks to Ben, I now know that this effect is called Virga.
10. My new favorite flower. Why is this travel? Well, this was from my trip to the Butchart Gardens in Victoria, BC. I don’t normally take pictures of flowers, but I think this flower is the prettiest thing ever.
