OK GaliWalker, Somebody is going to have to explain how this is a "selfie" to me. I can accept that it could be you in the photo but did you really trigger the sensor from that far away? And if so I want to know how.

I have a remote shutter release that has a range of 80-100m. I set up the camera on a tripod, then carefully made my over to the spot I'd already picked out. There were quite a few deep fissures in the broken terrain, so I couldn't use a timer and make a dash to that spot (which was too far anyway). I used to do that in the past, but that was just an accident waiting to happen.

Um. GaliWalker would it be reasonable to ask you the make/model of shutter release you use? 80 meters sounds pretty good to me. Thanks.

Probably the two most iconic waterfalls on the Olympic Peninsula that people are most familiar with.

Digitally zoomed phone pic looking NE from Lake Sammamish. Not sure what fire this is.

Nothing really in the satellite hotspot data on this side of the cascade crest. In the morning I will take a look at the overnight data.

I am impressed! That is a long way to trigger a shutter release and a lot of effort for the photo. Well done.

Your Sol Duc photo brought back a terrifying moment for me. Back in the 80s I took a photo of the falls from the channel below; bare-footed on slippery rocks with a borrowed 35mm camera with the water about waist deep. The things we do sometimes when we are young and dumb, I lucked out and did not fall but it was really touch and go.

Nice photos.
