Sunset in the mountains is a hit or miss event. As sun goes down it might highlight some parts of the landscape and then disappear behind high peaks and leave you with nothing. Clouds play a huge part of it as well, they might allow it to peak out or not. Of course, the part of the year when you happen to be there plays its own role as well, as sun will land at a completely different part of the sky and might now light up the subject of your photograph.
Here it kind of played pretty well, hitting the higher part of the waterfalls and the hotel above it, but it was already too low to reach for the lower part of the falls. Still, I like it.
And yes, this is not really Twin Peaks Falls, but when I look at the photos of it I’m reminded of the Twin Peaks. Some of you know what I ‘m talking about.
It probably could be anywhere out there West, this type of view is very common. So I do not expect anyone to really know where this place is, as it could be in any of the western states, but maybe someone will recognize that specific mountain peak and can tell us all where it is. Have a great Friday!
Weekend Update: Hey everyone. This is in Idaho, somewhere on US93 looking North West. Next you are there enjoy the view!
Not sure why but all of these trees are dead. No evidence of fire. They are just dead from whatever other reasons. There are whole mountain sides of them. It is very striking to see while hiking to the top of the Mount Washburn.
Not like the other Grand Canyon, not as big, but it is beautiful as the other one for sure, and you can see why the park was named the way it is.
Do you have favorite travel or photography podcasts? Perhaps even one that combines both? I know of a few travel podcasts, some photography, but none are that are specific to travel and photography. What do you listen on your commute to work?
Couple Grand Tetons National Park doing all kind of hiking and nature exploring. I took this on one of the hikes around Lake Jenny, I think it is Cascade Creek flowing into the lake. Wild mountain river.
Easy one today, I think. What is the name of this place?Very
Weekend Update: Well, well. I thought most visitors will know it, not sure why I thought, maybe because it is indeed in the middle of the NYC, in Central Park, at the edge of one of the ponds, little place called Belvedere Castle. Very good pick Mr mvschulze, and no it is not Great Wall of China Chauncey, there is an American flag on top of it…
Sunrise at Angkor Wat is a very busy place. Only to clear out around one or so hours after sun is up. Then bigger tour busses show up with tour group tourists and its get swarmed with human all over again for the rest of the day.
Somehow between the sunrise and the arrival of the after breakfast crowds I got a chance to see this girl walking up the grazing horse, it look just too perfect not to take a photo.
