Rarelt do we have a clear shot of Baker from BC. We always seem to be fogged or smogged out. This was mid day so the lighting was off for color so I switched to B&W. Cheers JIM

Nice shot Jim!

Many years.....and come to think of it......many pounds ago, I had a chance to climb Baker with my Dad. You can actually smell the sulfur coming out of the crater. I may have to dig up some old pictures. It was a perfectly cloudless day, but the steam rising out of the crater made it look like there were clouds behind us.

Thanks for the trip down memory lane! (-:

Very nice capture, Jimbo!

I've often wondered how far east you have to get in order to get a nice shot without the smog!

I may post the color just to show how poor the lighting was though the shadows on the mountain is what made the shot Dave. JIM

Jimbo, that's a gorgeous shot, I really like the b&w treatment...

It's very interesting to see a good clear shot of Baker from the north, too. Most of the views I have ever run across have been from the south. Makes the brain do a bit of a double-take to see Shuksan on the right side instead of the left

Thanks Jim. Rarely do we have a clear look at Baker. The color was really washed out. Below is what the color version looked like. [just a slightly different focal length] The color is growing on me. JIM
