Default Alpental

one of the shots i got over New Year's weekend...one of the mountains near Alpental at Snoqualmie Pass in the Washington Cascades. the image didn't do anything for me in color, so i converted to B&W. not sure if it's any more interesting, but i like it better... 5D, 24-135 @ 57mm, 1/60 @ f/11...

Great shot squirl! I think it works really well as a B/W shot

Fantastic shot - and the word "Alpental" made me smile, because the "Alpen" are a big mountain range in Europe (called "Alps" in English) and "Tal" means "valley" in German

Great shot. I don't think I will ever have the courage to shoot (or process) a landscape in B&W but you did this so well.

appropriate, and i'm sure the folks who named this area knew that... this "Alpental" is the name of a small community of ski lodges and vacation homes (with a ski area) located in a steep valley between the mountains. the peak in the photo is at the eastern end of the valley, and rises just above the main part of the community.

Rocky this photo has a retro look to me, I like it muchly! As said, the B&W works very well.

You are getting your money's worth out of that 24-135! Nice lens, sharp even on full frame.
