Sunset from the cliffs
Lens: DA-18-135 Camera: K20D Photo Location: White Trout Lake, Algonquin Park ISO: 200 Aperture: F3.5 
Posted By: normhead, 09-14-2012, 07:34 AM

Tripper and I hiked up the cliff so we could take afew pictures from the top of the rock face for what looked like it was going to be a fantastic sunset. The view from the top didn't disappoint. All these shots were taken at 18mm.

PDG (pretty Damn Good) Norm - can't wait to see all the fall shots - one could spend some time out there.

The first and last are my favorites, Norm!! Really outstanding shots. I think you provide a wonderful testimonial for the 18-135!

Thanks Jim... the last one was at the peak of the colour, that plus the wind and current patterns make it different.

The fall shots are going to be here way to quickly daacon, summers pretty much done.

The 18-135 did good I have to admit.

#2 was looking away from the sun down the lake , and before the colours peaked, so much more pastel.. a different kind of image than the others for sure.

We think so too... we can't all be wrong, right?

That was when I first fought my way through the brush to the edge of the ridge, I suspected there would be a better vantage point, there was actually a fairly well worn trail at the top, just not on the way up. SO I snapped a few pictures here before finding the look out. Those pictures with the backlit pines always seem to have an extra dimension.

Thanks for commenting one and all.

I agree that you capture some wonderful shots with the 18-135. In fact your shots and posts about it helped me (along with some others) to decide to purchase one recently.

These shots are quite lovely. I especially love the first and last. They make me want to go hiking or jump into a canoe or kayak.

It's true civano... many of the best shots to be had are the product of either hiking or canoeing... it would be great if every lookout had a road going to it, but the simple fact is, most don't.
