    Default The Presidentials Looking Very Presidential (Cherry Mtn: 11-May-2010)

    On the day of this hike, it was a good day for viewing the Presidentials from both the Mt. Martha and the Owl's Head peak, both of which are located atop Cherry Mountain. However, I didn't spend a lot of time trying to get the perfect photo. My primary goal for this day was to do my routine maintenance as the Trail Adopter for Martha's Mile (the trail that connects these two peaks).

    Anyway, below are two snapshots. The first was taken from Mt. Martha, and the second one was taken from the Owl's Head peak.




    Other than an occasional trace of snow at the higher elevations, the trail was basically dry for the entire distance. However, there was one very notable exception.
    The final approach to the Owl's Head summit is quite steep, and it had patches of thick ice. It might take a few warm days to melt it away. In the meantime, you should bring your microspikes!

    It's difficult to tell much from the snapshot below, but nonetheless, it shows one of the patches of ice as you approach the Owl's Head summit.

    Anna; Chris; Bob: Thanks guys once again for your very kind comments! Actually, all the credit should go to our lovely mountains. With something as strikingly beautiful as they are, it's really difficult NOT to capture a beautiful image with a camera . . . even using a simple "point & shoot" like I do.

    John, it is amazing the shots you get with a "point & shoot". You definitely have an good eye to compensate for the type of camera that most of us use.

    Bob: Thank you for the compliment. Maybe it's not so much having a "good eye" as it is dumb luck and being at the right place at the right time!

    Anna: I use a Panasonic DMC-ZS1 camera. I've tried other brands, but keep coming back to Panasonic. However, I've not tried a Sony. Perhaps I should. You get some excellent photos with your Sony Cybershot DSC-H7.
