just got back from a week-long visit to central Idaho... one of my favorite parts of the country. here's a sample of the scenery...

this is about 15 miles north of Sun Valley, looking east from highway 75...

here's the view looking west from the highway as the road follows the Salmon River...

sunrise at Redfish Lake... i stayed here for 4 days.

last one for now... this is McGown Peak, about 15 miles northwest of Redfish. the hazy look is caused by smoke from several wildfires that were burning in the mountains farther to the north and west... this was one of the best shots i got of this peak, which is a shame, since it's a really gorgeous place!

Your second picture (that one with the fence) is really a pro-shot!

I appreciate your sense for composition!

Hey Squirl,

I agree with the above replies, great series of landscape shots. And the fence one is original, good. I think there would be a huge lot of potential with enough time and varied lighting using the fence and background...

Idaho looks lovely... like some other parts of the world I've been to even (transylvanian alps or Tasmanian highlands, really interesting how similar the grass, mountain shapes are, etc).

Just one very minor (not major) point... the rocks in the last photo seem to be a bit "lost" being cut off somewhat... for me either leave them out or fully in the photo... but maybe I'm too fussy! Still winning shots all round!

Thanks for sharing.

Some top shots there squirl. I agree the 2nd shot is very nicely composed. Its amazing what a good foreground can do for a landscape shot, especially one with some perspective which draws you from the front to the back of the scene - adds a whole other dimension to the shot.
