21 Feb 12.  Not wanting to ruin a good thing, I should leave the rock theme alone, but I'll press my luck and provide another image of rocks. This time it will be of a bunch of rock you have seen several times prior, but never from this angle. While we were up at Boundary Bay, British Columbia, Canada, a couple weeks back seeking out the Snowy Owls, Mt Baker put on a show that was memorable for its color, and one I have never had an opportunity to view before as we were visiting that area for the first time. As the light rapidly became questionable for shooting the birds, afternoon rapidly slipping into evening, the sunset on the northwestern side of the mountain cast it in a lovely peachy color and provided some nice shadowing effects. I employed a fairly strong amount of noise reduction to make this image acceptable for my tastes, which results in the mountain appearing a tad bit less rugged that in actuality, but the noise level was such that I think you would have found it distracting as did I. Other than that, this is pretty much how it looked coming out of the camera. ISO 640; 1/250 sec @ f / 6.3 on a tripod using the 80-400 lens.
