Mountains Forever


Facebook Best-Of

I notice that my Facebook page has really taken off lately with a lot of subscribers.  So, I’ve been putting a bunch of my old favorites there on FB.  I think most people there have never seen them!  Of course, they are all from the blog here… maybe even a few years ago… but it has been kind of fun to dredge up some of the old favorites!

So if you’re new here to the blog, you may enjoy visiting my timeline there too!

Daily Photo – Mountains Forever

During the Yosemite PhotoWalk, the sky was beyond belief for the first few nights. The second half of the trip had fairly mundane skies. So, I was happy I went out there and got a lot of shots in the beginning!

I’m often optimistic about the “future” of the trip, assuming that the sunsets will always get better and better. This rarely is the case, so I don’t know why I’m consistently optimistic about the prospects.

    That does look good, like a fiery furnace

  • Soooo beautiful – often in CA I see this fog come in and then the sunset – makes you feel like you could just walk on them!

  • Derek K

    That’s the kind of photo that most people can only dream about taking. Perfect combination of “being there” and knowing what to do when the scene presents itself. I assume it’s HDR, but it’s hard to tell.

    It’s a wonderful, dreamy photo or is it a painting. This is the kind of image I’d like to have hanging on my wall, or maybe wallpaper.  

  • This is beyond beautiful – mesmerizing.  Heaven will be a let down after this!

    I love this image. It’s gorgeous… and totally California. Beautiful, Trey.

    Susan, how did you get your photo to come up????

  • Matthew Taylor

    Nice Trey. I love the somewhat landscape abstracts and think most overlook them. I assume this was medium telephoto?

    Yes, I took this at about 200 mm I think.

    I love this. @GeorgeGreen:disqus  is right, it would look fantastic as wall art.

  • Hi Gail!! When I replied – I chose ‘yahoo’ instead of something else – so it automatically put in my yahoo avatar! Hope you are staying warm there!
