27 Sep 12.  With the fog departing Sunday morning, we had a day of beautiful fall light with which to record the surroundings. Our efforts included Artist's Point, the Bagley Lakes area, and neighboring Picture & Highwood Lakes. The best time to shoot both of these lakes, although anytime is very nice, is in the late afternoon, starting around 1500 and continuing for about 90 minutes. When the huckleberries turn their dark red color, this is the time frame in which to capture the maximum color. In all my trips there I have yet to coordinate with that brilliant red color, but even without the deep reds the area is a beautiful place to be spending some very high quality time. We were about 10 days too early for that color I'm guessing, and my gut feeling is that all the pictures you see of the area in full color are October shots. I may try one more time this year for that color, but even if I don't get it, I'm more than happy with what I recorded on this year's outing. This image was taken right around 1600 on Sunday, in between intermittent breezes, and as such I was able to record an almost perfect reflection of Mt Shuksan. Look closely and you'll be able to see the effects of a beginning breeze flowing from the opposite shore. Nikon D300s; Aperture Priority; ISO 200; 1/250 sec @ f / 7.1.
