Sauk Mountain rises fromits base of 250 ft to a height of 5,500 ft. 7-mile drive switchbacks to the parking lot at approximately 4,500 ft., a foot trail switches up the last steep 1,000 ft. During the winter the trailis too steep and treacherous to traverse. During the summer the trail cuts trough ameadowthat is full of flowering alpine plants.

Cow Parsnip and view of parking lot.



Flowers at the top of the trail.

The lighting is beautiful on both shots. It looks like a lovely place.

I like the late back lighting in the first shot. Something about the second shot bothers me but I'm not sure what it is. What, if any, post-processing did you do on it? I'm not sure if it is over-saturated or what but there is too much of something. I love the composition. I with I could be more specific at what bothers me. Let's see what others have to say.

Cal it may be that I applied too much saturation in the blue. I shoot in RAW and pretty well start from the processor output to present tihe image.What impressed mein the scene as I took the photo were thestrong blues, greens and yellows created by the direct sunlight at a higher altitude. In time I will revisit the image and see if it feels right.

Thanks for your comments.

The first one almost looks like it was taken on another planet.
