31 Jan 17 This is the same location from which I shared about 3 photos last year of the back side of Mt Baker. By back side folks mean the side you can't see from I-5 and locations west. You get yet another very different view from the SW corner of British Columbia, Canada. During our visit this time, unlike last year, there wasn't a cloud to be found and we could have waited until dark but we weren't going to get anything interesting in the sky. So I went with what I was given and then "fixed" it up in the computer. Everything save for the cloud and the shadow beneath it are as it was when I took the shot, but I've added the cloud stuff in to make for a more interesting shot. Getting the cloud behind the mountain was going to be the challenging aspect but it was very simple once I thought about it. All I needed to do was to erase it right where it meets the mountain and then thin it just some immediately above that. The result is that it appears as if it is blowing over the mountain top.
Aside from a small amount of detail clean up, adding the cloud, and then being converted to B&W, the image is straight from the camera. Nikon D300s; 18 - 200; Aperture priority; ISO 200; 1/640 sec @ f /10.
