Your photos are well composed with great color and processing, Justin.
This image is, to me, kind of "busy", rendering somewhat uneasy feeling, very strong, though.

I believe it is red lichen...

very nice. Is it on a well used trail or did you do an overnight?


The spot I shot this photo is a 75 minute hike from the huts that we stayed at. The area is 30km away from any roads, so it either takes a long hike, or a helicopter ride in. This trip my father and I choppered in, but my trip 2 weeks before I hiked in with a friend.

Yes Gary is right, this is red lichen. In the full size file you can also see lighter white and green species as well. Next fall when I come here I want to focus on them closer and make the lichen a more prominent feature of my composition

MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!! That light is delicious. Hope we get that lucky this year! Killer image dude, great stitch and composition with the pano, love everything about it.


Thanks dude. Yeah this was the most epic day of photography I've had so far. I could honestly put together 3 or more totally epic shots from it with completely different conditions and light. Eventually ....
BTW, I want to shoot more epic grand landscapes like this. We should hit up Mt Robson.

This looks amazing on a monitor, which I have a feeling doesn't even do this image a bit of justice. I can't even imagine how great it would look printed.

Justin you love this spot!

it is nice to see it time and time again under different conditions. This shot is much more moody and "dirty" due to the light and also the rocks and brush poking through the snow.

Beautiful light and processing Dustin. The composition while excellent feels a little out of balance. The large rock on the right is what I am struggling with. To me, the main focus is the Queen and the lake. The larger boulder on the right is grabbing too much of my attention and my eyes keep getting stuck there. Now, if you crop it to match to left it feels more balanced and my eyes stay more focused on the main subject. Either way, it is a gorgeous photo. I am extremely jealous as I'd love to shoot there one day!

Hi Justin,

Cracking image and very nice seen and processed.

My only nit pick would have been to crop some of the right hand side out as I feel this would draw the viewer in more and provide a slightly better balance.

Just my two cents.. but I do like this a lot.
