    Definitely a gorgeous day up there today. Pretty spectacular sunrise this morning too. Hope today is the day that Patrick is heading up to get his snow pictures...

    Certainly great views and excellent weather, but from a photographers standpoint its awfully boring. Hopefully Patrick will prove me wrong though.

    Hard for me to find these boring






    Perhaps a few clouds would create some additional interest. In any case I believe that Patrick has the ability to find beautiful photo opportunities in just about any situation (as he has shown so many times).

    I agree, great views, nice scenery. But if you blew it up and turned it into a poster I'd never buy it.

    Default Yep

    Bluebird skies are great for hiking but make boring pictures. One week I spent on the summit volunteering I got up every morning for sunrise and went out every evening for sunset. Had one of each every day and bluebird skies. Hardly a cloud all week. Every photo looks the same. I almost would rather have had fog! Nah, but the pictures are boring!

    That last picture is fantastic. While blue skies are boring, the Juxtiposition of snow and foliage will certainly make any pics today pop...add a polarizer and Im sure Mr. Gnome is getting some winners while I'm stewing at work wishing I were there!

    Speaking of polarizing...........

    Is there any secret to buying a polarizing filter? I'm sure there's different types but can one good one do the trick or do I need to look at a few different types?
