    Great hike yesterday on a beautiful day. Really the only thing missing were some white fluffy clouds. Our efforts were well rewarded with the views from the top! Foliage is still about a week away from peak in this area and still very green in the lakes region below.

    Great set. Looks like you are going to have some good colors at peak. Awesome views.

    The colors look extremely saturated, perhaps a little bit too saturated for my taste.

    Whew, you made it! Wonderful landscapes.

    I noticed especially with the blues, I noticed it with the peacock you shared recently and couldn't quite figure out what seemed off. Something you posted that was vibrant orange seemed that way too. Unless someone is going for a photo illustration to take it into something other than a photograph, I'd expect the color with nature especially to seem real.

    If I hiked that I would have to camp up there for three days before I felt rested and ready to come down and then I might just roll down the whole way, ha! Beautiful pics and place. That rock hut probably made someone a nice wind break for overnight. I had to look up the location, you're way up north!

    Yes it was fun thanks!

    Barely. Feeling it today.

    Thanks!

    This is about 1.5 hours north of me. Heading back up there this week.

    Thanks for the feedback. I barely touched the overall saturation in post on most of these but I did tweak the reds. I think maybe the combo of the polarizing filter, the Fuji Velvia film simulation and the Haze Removal filter in post may have pushed a few of the blues over the edge - especially #4.

    Thanks for your c&c. Not sure I did anything to the peacock photo but it was taken in May so don’t remember and I didnt save an original of that one but the peacock really was that blue. Here is one of today’s pic unedited.

    We passed a large troop of older Boy Scouts on their way up to camp overnight at the summit.

    The way down was less strenuous but more work. We were jokingly saying we should turn that hut into a bar and then build a water slide to get everyone down.

    I don't want to even imagine the wedgies such a water slide would create. :crushed:

    Lovely country and great shots. Having spent some time in the Canadian Rockies the one thing I miss are mountains. We only have a few hills where I am.
