Default Driving cross country

Just finished a month-long, cross country trip. Highlights included The Badlands, Glacier National Park, Mt. Ranier, and PCH.

Badlands:


Glacier (lens flare got me on the first one...12-50 hood, but I still like the result):




Montana:


Rainier:


PCH:

Beautiful! The colors in that first image look like Fuji Velvia on steroids.

Yeah, I boosted the color saturation in the first picture a bit. But the road was also brand new, and the rocks on the right were some of the most interesting in the park, so it doesn't seem too far off to what I saw. Polarizing filter was used on a couple of these (in the Glacier pics it is obvious).

wow, just great shots Drew! really love the first one of the badlands, with the open road ahead just calling to be explored. The rest are really cool too but the colors on the first are just superb.

Like everyone else said, I like them all.

I actually think the unintended lens flare really really works for that shot. Without it it wouldn't be nearly as interesting.

We only hiked up to the Paradise point, about 5 miles or so. But it was a perfect day to go to the Muir base camp, which you could probably do with regular hiking boots and some ski poles.

I definitely want to go back in the next couple of years and climb it. It doesn't look terribly difficult, but the size of the mountain is enormous. This shot is zoomed in to 50mm from across the valley.

I agree with Ramce, the first shot is well composed with the road leading you to the scene. All the shots a very nice....also like the shot of your wife? looking toward the scene.
