Default North of the Island.

Getting into this photography thing. Took a short ride to the top of the island to try and get a shot of Mt Baker. Too much haze for a decent shot but you have to try....right.
On my way back home I went west and saw where the haze was coming from, fog covering the sun. More interesting than a lousy mountain so I too a couple of shots there. A heron tried to ruin one shot but I took it anyway.

Couple of shots, took about 75 in all. Tried some 3 shot .7 bracket shots just for grins.

Me too. Maybe because I don't see mountains like that very often, but I like that photo. (I like the others also.)

Thanks kids.
I liked #2 because it was such a surprise shot. I was losing light really fast so I used a chain link fence (Ugh!) for a rest and shot at 1/50. Then I grabbed the heron shot as I saw him coming in. You can see that one is hand held, the camera & 70-300 picked up a really fast lock.

#2, #3 are excellent. Looks like a dream land on Disney.

I looked at a couple more shots from that sequence, one from a slightly different angle and one a full 300mm. Comments?

Of the last two that you posted, I like the first. Even though the mountain is hazy, it's still a great shot. There's enough foreground image to give some interest and show that it is a far-away photo. I also like the fact that you captured some hills in between, too.

Thanks Jeanie, the long lens forshortens the levels of hills, I like that also.
I plan on going back to that spot from time to time for different looks the mountain offers.
