This was one of the hardest 1.5 mile hikes I've ever made. You start from the lake down there and hike up this steep, crumbly mountain until you get to this ridge. I damn near killed myself stepping on unstable rocks over and over.
I loved the view here and set up for sunset. It took me about an hour to find a spot and composition I really liked. I really liked this shot more than later ones I took from the same spot, because the sun is falling scross those trees in the front and adds a lot the depth of the image by having a nice middleground subject. Later, those trees were dark and it didn't seem as strong of an image.A mounted print of this shot can be purchased at my Etsy store for only $20 - [link]Website | Facebook Fan Page | Twitter | Purchase Prints
