    Another hike up my closest little peak just before the first rains of the fall season started. I was mainly there to try out my new drone, but was glad I brought my Sony A7rII with 24-104mm also for these earthbound shots.

    Very nice, How does the drone work at high altitude? What are the altitude limits?

    Nice set - I hope you are right about snow and precipitation being on the way. I am tired of bone dry. I love the layers in the Glacier Pk. shot.

    Hey Jim,

    Very nice work here with #3 and 4 being my favorites. Those two have very distinct compositions. I think in #1 and 2 perhaps a bit more shadow detail in the bottom with those ridges? I think the ridges are getting lost there, and they are an important anchor to those images.

    Thanks for all the comments. That's funny that you want more shadow detail at the bottom Jim. There was a good bit of haze so I cranked haze reduction, then put a ND grad up from the bottom to darken it to put more emphasis on the mountain and clouds, which for me are the main idea. Those ridges are low nondescript 2nd growth hills that will be logged again in the future.
