Default Mount Seymour - Dec 30, 2012

I went for a snowshoe up to Mt. Seymour this evening. Snowshoes were not needed since the area has seen a lot of traffic and so they spent a majority of the time on my backpack. Microspikes, YakTrax or crampons would be good to have instead. The short traverse to get down from "Second Peak" was good today but that section is definitely the hardest part in the winter and it's not always safe. I always bring an ice axe for that short section to provide a third point of contact.


I played around with HDR on some of these shots. I invite critiques on any of the photos.

Great evening to be up there.
The HDR is subtle, IMO. Nice work.
What lens and settings did you use for the moon?

Mist below and clouds above make for some good aspects.

Thanks all.


Re:

The city lights provided the lighting and then a white balance adjustment made it look white.

What lens and settings did you use for the moon?
The moon was shot at 250mm on an APS-C sensor. The second image is cropped.

The effect in the first one was unexpected. The night lighting from the resort lit up the trees from the front and the moon looks like the sun.
F5.6, 20 Seconds, ISO 100, no flash


The second image (which was cropped,) was shot at F10, 1/13 second, ISO 100, no flash. The outline of the tree almost makes it look like someone is trying to kiss the moon.
