p.1 #1 · Windy Ridge in Mt Assiniboine Park


This weekend I went to Mount Assiniboine with my oldest son and we hiked to Nub Peak and Windy Ridge.

Here are my best shots from Windy Ridge. Windy Ridge is windy and right on the continental divide. My son beat me up the hill and walked over the narrow natural bridge (that has several thousand feet drop on either side). When I got there between the wind and my legs shaking from the exertion up the hill, I decided to skip the bridge.

But here are the best shots.

Comments and feedback are appreciated. Scott

They are all nice. #1 is a wonderful combination of excellent light, scenery, skill, and vision. Beautiful.

dgdg: Glad you like them. In retrospect, I might turn the saturation down on 1. Thanks for the great complements. Much appreciated. Scott

In retrospect, there is one flaw. I'm not there!
I think #1 on my current non calibrated monitor looks quite good for contrast and saturation. It has a lot of depth with these without yet looking overdone. To me, it appears natural given the wide variation in lighting. I might fiddle with decreased saturation of the tan grass/tundra only to keep me from focusing on it instead of the main subject.

1 really is a grand shot photo Scott, I love it. The other 3 make me yearn to go for a hike there, what an amazing place.

All very nice but the 1st one is my favorite. I wish it had a touch more contrast but it's a wonderful shot nonetheless.

dgdg: Thanks for the specific suggestions. I will work on the processing. Next time you can be there Much appreciated. Scott


helenica: Glad you like them and 1 in particular. Thank you for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott


nwadventurer7: Glad you like it. Shooting near noon almost toward the sun creates difficulties in processing. So I am glad you like it. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott


nburwell: Glad you like number 1. I guess I should take another run at improving it. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott


Tim Kuhn: It is a great place with endless photographic opportunity. And very few people which is a nice treat. Glad you like 1. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott


lukeb: Thats the greatest complement. Next time I am there I will walk in the dark to this point for the sunrise shot. You are welcome to have a copy but getting it signed would be difficult. Just follow my smugmug link. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott


gtg844f: Glad you like it. It was a great hike with great company. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott


Vern Dewit: I will see what I can do with the contrast. It was shot into the sun so it requires subtle processing. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott

Here is a bit more contrast:

Hi Scott,

#1 looks absolutely stunning, but was an ND Grad used here? There is a obvious linear shade which cuts across the mountain tops and the middle of the clouds.

krickett:I am glad you like it. I never use ND grad. I have found them to be too difficult in the mountains for the reason you mention. This is 3 bracketed exposure shots, turned into hdr and then blended with the single normal exposure. I don't see the gradient you are talking about - maybe it is just the pixelation from down sampling. I will look again. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott


Nigel Turner: Glad you like it. It was a nice overcast morning that saved the day from high noon shooting. Glad you like 1. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott


philtax: It is an epic view. I am going to visit again and find this at early light. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott


dwa652: Glad you like it. I am trying to lure you back again for next year. It is a great spot. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott

Onelightstand: We live in an area that is 2nd to none - if I did not have a job and a family I would be out all the time. Its a great place. Glad I could remind you. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott


Harshaj1: Glad you like them. It was so cold (i should have put my overpants over my shorts) and I was so tired at the top, I ran out of ambition to shoot more. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott
