^^ ayyy I've been around there, gorgeous scenery. Need to go back at some point and do the peak hike there like you did. Lovely shot!

Rowe glacier.


Some bighorns, first time I've seen them in the wild. Only other time I've seen them is right off the road, causing tourist traffic jams.

Nice.
You gotta get out of the park to see bighorns. There's some spots up around Cherokee Park/Red Feather with a herd that seems to stay pretty close to the rocky bits.
If/when you do Medicine Bow Peak, the "hard" route is not that bad. My wife did it with the kid on her back (35# including the pack), and I carried the kid down. Up and back down took us maybe 4 hrs? Also, don't park in the main parking lot, park at Libby Lake and squeeze in an extra 1/4 -1/2 mile. Wildflowers are bonkers up there right now.

What focal length did you shoot at/how close were you able to get?

That was just at 40mm on my 12-40 lens (on micro 4/3, so I guess 80mm equivalent), and at about 20m. They were more skittish on my way up to the glacier, and coming down that group seemed at least curious and stood around watching me as I slowly went down the slope. I wasn't going straight towards them, more at a 70 degree angle or so.

Then they decided I was too close and ran off.

Oooh, did you happen to make it to Frogner park? My favorite Oslo memory was walking around all of the Vigeland statues late one night when it was foggy out. It was simultaneously one of the creepiest and one of the most beautiful artistic experience I've ever had. I was alone, a long way from home, and just sort of wandering around this silent white fog with creepy piles of people occasionally looming out at me.

some old (not camping, but definitely outdoors) phone shots from Georgia, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan:

North Ossetia:



The notoriously blue lake outside Almaty (on a very grey day--my condolences to the couple doing their wedding shots):



Stormclouds over Karakol:



Mountain passes outside Karakol:



and from this weekend, actual camera shots trying my hand at astrophotography, with the moon behind lighting up the canyon walls and the distant LA lights lighting up the lower half of the field--a bit too long towards star trails, but serviceable:



a lot of dusk shots (nearly full moon, so I couldn't really do peak night shots) had goddamn Starlink™ bullshit kramering into the lower part off the field, but i got one nice chance green shooting star instead (ironically while trying to get a set of shots for stacking--these are all single-shots that i haven't tried to develop extensively):



daytime was mostly spent cowering away from the sun, napping and reading in a little hoodoo nook that got shade all day, but as much as i was lucky with clear skies on the first evening, i got lucky with some nice cloud cover as the second day closed, allowing me to walk around a bit without instantly melting (i tried at the start of the day before nope-ing out to my shade nook after about 30m of walking under direct sun) and get some nice hazy expanse shots:



and lastly, though the park's brochure wasn't wrong about there being rather limited visible fauna, LIZARD (they used this for the opening desert archaeology shots in Jurassic Park, gotta get at least one dinosaur in):



it camouflage good, but it cannot hide

can't really combine timg and links well, so full album, which i'll hopefully expand/improve past this first pass: https://www.flickr.com/photos/fivre/albums/72157715868376653

[Cross-post from hiking thread]

My partner and I got super sick of being cooped up in my apartment in Toronto this summer, so last month we packed up my car and drove to the Rockies to get a change of scenery. We ended up spending four weeks along the AB and BC border, hiking every other day or so. We capped the trip off with a backpacking trip along the Rockwall in Kootenay NP, which was incredible. If I had to pick a single highlight, though, I would definitely choose the Abbott Ridge trail in Glacier NP (of Canada!). It blew everything else away---Banff, Yoho, Kananaskis country, even the Rockwall. I got a ton of great photos from everywhere, though, and I thought I'd share:

It is desert season, so started off yesterday by doing the Domelands in the Coyote Mountain Wilderness, about 90 minutes east of San Diego



People like to shoot out here but never pick up their brass.















Did some slot canyons



Halfway



These domes used to be sand dunes that hardened and the winds have carved away at them over time for make the formations



Looking north toward Salton Sea



The top of the mountains used to be a seabed a long time ago so there's some marine fossils if you look.



This morning drove up to Mt. Laguna for sunrise and left my phone on potato mode. Oops.











These are all looking east toward Salton Sea and Anza Borrego Desert State Park.

The ones with no border are digital crops from a D750 (usually 5-10 shot panos)

Saturday I went up to Granite Mountain via Cool Canyon out on the western edge of Anza Borrego Desert State Park, seeing as it'll probably be my last desert hike for the season since babby is coming very soon.

I knew Santa Ana's were blowing in, but wasn't expecting 50-60mph gusts for the stretch that went ~4,500ft to the peak at 5,650ft

Overall it was a fun hike, as once you get out of the canyon there's no real trail and it's just making your way up the ridges with some scrambling along the way.

here is a picture of a Barred Owl i just barely was able to capture on a point and shoot camera about ten years ago.

i sat in a deer stand overlooking a marsh two nights in a row, from about 5pm-sundown, and of course on that second night it swooped in at a rodent right as i was just about out of sunlight. i also had to completely max out the zoom on the camera, so i was happy to get the picture i did:
