Recent Hike up Hadley Mountain. Woke up at 4:30 AM, Should have gotten up an hour earlier I guess. Still decent enough light; clouds rolled in and rain came down later in the day, so it was this or nothing. Shot a lot with my Hasselblad, but did these two shots with the Nikon. Nikon D300, 35mm DX lens @ F8, 250th. With Polarizer for the first shot.

Re: View from the Top

Hey Eric I like the first one. What a beautiful area.

On the second one though I am a little curious as to your intent on this shot. Did you want the rocks in the foreground or a shot showing the rolling hills off in the distance?

Re: View from the Top

I think it'll probably work better in the square I shot with the hassy. But I wanted to use the rocks in the foreground to draw you to the distant mountains. I'm iffy on the second shot; that's the reason I posted it.

Re: View from the Top

I don't think you really needed the rocks to see those distant mountains. the range of colors carries that out nicely. I would be interested though in seeing the square shot

Re: View from the Top

I bet this is a great location for sunrise/sunset depending where the sun rises/sets. Too bad the timing is past the magic hour because this is a beautiful scene. How bad was the hike, Eric?

Re: View from the Top

It's pretty straight uphill for the first hour. next half hour isn't bad, and then you're at the top. I'm thinking of doing an overnight here to get the light right. It's a 40 minute drive, 1.5 hike which makes for a lot of time in the dark (and little sleep) if I leave from my house. There's also access to a firetower here that gets you up even higher if you are so inclined. Sunset would probably be the best, but I had work to do that evening (plus it poured...). You've got a 360 view from the top though. Hadley Mountain is the area.

Re: View from the Top

Well, the best solution would be to hike up there ofr sunset and camp over night and already be there for sunrise. Hiking up/down mountain trails in the dark is dangerous and sometimes painful (low branches in the dark) Ah, that elusive perfect light!!!!

Re: View from the Top

I really like the first image. You've done a great job of framing the scene with those trees and the little bit of morning mist over the river adds some atmosphere. I think you're right about the light being better earlier. A darker sky and a bit more of a golden cast might make this extra special.
