I'll see what I can do. If people actually start BUYING my prints I'll be able to make a lot more of them... :)

(Yes, that means that when I get my photography business going, I'll actually get paid to go backpacking :))

I took the shot in this thread in February. We did it on snowshoes, which made the going easier, and of course we had to park at the lower lot near the ski lifts and all. It was great fun, even though it was a pretty easy hike :)

I love the way that the blueberry and huckleberry bushes become so bright in the fall. The berries are wonderful. I'm going to make sure that I use the huckleberries to make either pancakes or muffins this fall. ;)

I'm pretty close to Ballard -- close enough to walk there now and then. I actually walk to work in Fremont. I also head up to Bothell 2-3x a week. I stay out of downtown other than for ArtWalk :)

DIY cameras -- sweet! I've been sending my film out for processing. I don't have the space or resources for a darkroom at the moment, but it's something I want to learn, at least for B&W film. I think you can still get Ektachromes processed -- AFAIK Panda Lab in Queen Anne does that for up to medium format, and they send larger stuff out to R&R Custom Color in Spokane. They're a good lab, it's where I've had my color film processed since Ivey's closed down.

As far as formats, I'm currently limited to 4x5. I would some day like to try 8x10, but due to cost and weight I'm not in a hurry at the moment. Getting White Crane Photography off the ground is a higher priority right now.

If we keep the photography talk going on here, we might get a few other photographers on this forum to come out of the woodwork ;)

I'll PM you my e-mail address -- though can also find it on my web site :)

Well, you won't exactly have to twist my arm ;)

I think I'm going to have to plan a backpacking trip up there... I know you can do the Chain Lakes loop as a day hike, but I want to spend some time up there with my 4x5 during magic hour.

10 miles round trip to goat flats and back..another about 3 miles to get up to the glacier at Three Fingers.You can get to the lookout also with crampons and an ice axe..see NWhikers for shots from the lookout.
The blueberries start about 1/3 of the way up and continue on up into the alpine meadows..three distinct varieties and flavors with the best and most unique flavor the upper ones..like no others!

The trail is pretty flat although the first portion follows something resembling a creek bed(don't hike it in rain or immediately after.).After the first mile it becomes a decent trail..one set of switchbacks,kind of traverses around a mountain,then you end up at the halfway point of "Saddle Lake(camping).The trails continues about another 1-2 miles and opens up into alpine meadows and tarns from there own with the trail full of blueberry bushes on both sides until about 1/2 mile below Goat Flats meadows.You can set up your tent at the flats(in clumps of trees,on a few small meadows,etc..well separated from other existing campsites..some have trees for hammock hangers!
From there you climb up the ridge and go across two or three back valleys..marmotville,and goat hill.. :mrgreen: ..lots of gravel in the second one..switchbacks to the "gap" and looking down into the glacier towards the east.You can also see the mukilteo/clinton ferry,whidbey island..all the peaks into Canada,eastern peaks or towards rainier from goat flats(3 fingers mt blocks some views to the south).
As of now,it's still snowbound...luv that place!
Basically you take the road to granite falls..follow the road until about the Robe Trail,take dirt road across the way from that for 16+ miles..and small trailhead sign along the road with little parking...
The book reports are terrible!..I like that! :lol: SHHHHHH! :roll:

Sell big prints to banks. They pay.

My small photomural was over 5-feet by 20-feet.

realityguy,

That's beautiful up there. I looked at the album. Is that one of the tents you made :?:

Banks is a good idea. I'd been thinking of places like REI, hotels, real estate agents, and the like. I hadn't thought about banks.

Big prints is also why I use a big camera.

Sweet!
