It’s time for my weekly importuning for wildlife photos, as I go through them at an astounding rate (at least 7 contributors per week), and can always use more. Though I have about a week’s supply, that’s not good enough to allay my anxieties, so send in your good photos. Thanks!
Today’s contributor is James Blilie, who sent landscape pics. I’ve indented his captions. Click photos to enlarge them.
Here is another batch of landscape photos for your consideration in no particular order:
Climbers on the east right of Mt. Desperation, Olympic Mountains, Washington. July 1989. Scanned Kodachrome 64. Pentax M 20mm f/4 lens.
Delicate Arch, Arches National Park, Utah. April 1996. Scanned Kodachrome 64. Probably Tokina ATX 70-200 f/2.8 lens.
Badlands National Park, South Dakota. July 2013. Pentax K-5, Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC Lens at 10mm (crop factor 1.5)
Fern detail on solidified lava, Kilauea crater. Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Nov. 1990. Scanned Kodachrome 64.
Gravestone detail. Greenwood Cemetery, New Orleans, LA, April 2018. Lumix 7-14mm f/4 ASPH lens. Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II camera (crop factor = 2.0)
Sugar Maples, Shawano County, WI. October 2016. Lumix 7-14mm f/4 ASPH lens, at 7mm. Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II camera (crop factor = 2.0)
The standard climbing route is up the “cleaver” (rock ridge) to the left in the photo. This was mid-winter so we chose to climb straight up the Ingraham Glacier. We summited later that morning about 9am. This was my second (winter ascent) climb of Mt. Rainier. I was lucky to attempt Rainier twice and summit both times. (The other was July 1984.) Weather is everything on Mt. Rainier, especially winter ascents. Scanned Kodachrome 64. Pentax M 20mm f/4 lens.
I had only been living in Seattle a few weeks when I climbed Mt. Stuart via this easiest route. Steepness of the snow up the very long snow couloir climbing route is not exaggerated in this photo. Scanned Kodachrome 64. Pentax M 20mm f/4 lens.
