Default Hiking the Whites

Just got back from a 4 day hiking trip through the White Mountains (Franconia Notch and Mt. Washington area). I think I may need to learn how to do composite and stitched shots for some of these landscapes. These are all single shots with the 12-50 lens, which I brought because it is weather sealed and the weather did get wet.

Here are a few shots:

Awesome views. That's exactly the same lens I woulda taken to use primarily too, although I might have also slipped in the 9-18.

Good series, I am familiar with the area, in my pre-kids youth I would do Tuckerman's ravine every spring and I've hiked the old man of the Mt. before he fell off... lol I guess he was being held up by cables when I did it.

Anyways the first shot is really cool, I would see what you can do to accentuate the sunlit area and clouds in the valley below.

Yeah, accentuating all of the different layers of elevation is the goal on most of these shots. The first one was taken in the afternoon, about 30 min before we almost got struck by lightning. In the afternoon, all of the hills start to blend in as one dark mass.

Oh yeah, we didn't do Tuckerman Ravine. The first day we hiked up Ammonoosuc from the cog side, then went over Mt. Clay and Mt Jefferson before heading down. The second day we tried to do Adams and Madison, but it was raining too much. Third day we started at the one end of the Presidentials and did Mitzpah Hut, Pierce, Eisenhower, Monroe, and then Washington for the second time. We took the cog train back down to finish it off.
