Post Wed Jul 19, 2006 6:47 pm    Fun In a Tower On Lookout Mt.
 Reply to topic Reply with quote

A little creek snakes through the forest. There are various paths to rejuvenation amid the hike, but if you ask me, none surpass submerging the head into flowing-snow melt. One would assume that there would be some relief upon exiting the initial-forested stretch, this only applies in this case if one is infatuated with brush.A man who loves weedwhacking would be a man who would have his imagination tickled upon this stretch. Some cautionary words. . .the the stinging nettles flanking the trail may rock you. The stinging nettles brought forth retrospection on a time when I was a little tyke and the pain from stinging nettles would be equivalent in sensation to a severed limb now. Jump to the meadows. Some say the large landscape is just a bunch of little microscapes stitched together,  this notion applied during this stanza.


Push open the door on the lookout to a noise emanating from the trash can. Two mice had wound up in the can ( with or against their will, I am not certain) ,and seemed to be enjoying each other's company.Nothing signifies the prototypical existence more so than a mouse in a trash can. I pampered myself by drinking some 6/06 snow melt in the lookout. Eventually there was some cribbage to be played. There are certain activities that are specifically reserved for lookouts in the mts. . If we lingered in that tower any longer we would have undoubtedly invented a few new card games. The snow is essentially gone, so if you hate snow and enjoy visiting lookout mt., continue with glee. There are a few trees knocked over along the trail that apparently do not want you to proceed, but they are easily evasible. I learned one thing today . . .the length of the trip is seemingly increased tenfold if undertaken with sore joints. This trip was a killer way to murder time.

I appreciate the comments. Rest assured, for those images were taken with the relatively affordable digital rebel, which delivers a sufficient 6.3 mp. I also dabble with my medium format and 35mm cameras.

Is there any post-production involved?  The greens seem almost unrealistically deep.

I have partiality for underexposing, for it brings forth those deeper colors. If conditions apply, a polarizer works like a charm as well.

Thanks, Dan.  I thought the b&w added some necessary drama. The colorless image correlated well with the aged lookout.

I'm a total photography noob (but I'd like to learn!), what do you mean by underexposing? How can I do that with a digital?

Simply by reducing the exposure time( shutter speed) below what the meter indicates is proper for the scene.

Ahh that enhances color? I know that makes water look silky... Is there any book I should check out of the library regarding digital photography?
