[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Normally I don't include people in my landscape shots, but this one I thought was a good exception. I've posted a shot previously from the same area, and as is the case alot of times, I get caught up in the photography thing and others in the group hike on ahead.
This is a valley in Tombstone Park which descends into the North Klondike River Valley, which is off in the distance.

Excellent picture, great landscape picture with great colours and very good composition, the lights and the shadows are great and adding to the content, it is like watching in a 3D picture, well done!

Hi Tim,
You have done a great job capturing this beautiful area. The colours, vertical topography and shadows all work well together. Good POV and DOF. Also, the inclusion of the hikers adds to the scale and visual composition. Well done!


Hi Tim,

Well done with this nice POV. The hikers in the picture helps us to see the scale of the valley and these mountains. Good clarity throughout the DOF. Also like the patches of sun shining in the valley and mountains.

PC :)

That human element can really add to a photo sometimes. It is good to see. Excellent composition, exposure, DOF, and sharpness. The light was beautiful.

Hi Tim!
Glad you included the people actually, gives a really good perspective of the size and depth of the area here. Wow, what an amazing place! Bet it doesn't look like that now though! Where are the snowshoes! hee hee! Love the photo the color is amazing...great shot. TFS

Hello Tim

Your shots have a certain something that appeals to me.A richness of colour depth , wonderful clarity.This one is a real beauty,and the hikers do not distract,and could not possibly steal the show.They do add a nice perspective to the expanse however.Excellent POV and razor sharp detail.TFS


This is a STUNNER - The composition, colour, lighting and superb f/g work are all tops...
Beautifully photograph...

Sounds familiar, Tim, about staying behind for photography. You've done well including the two fellows backpackers. Great scenery with color and contrast, esp. the clouds and their shadows. TFS.

Hi Tim,
Beautiful scene captured exquistly with the rich colors and big atmosphere shining through, great job Tim.

Hi Tim

Very good shot of a very nice trip in this mountain! Great POV!!It's magic!!!


Wow Billy, what an excellent shot. I love the lighting and the shadows. Your composition is Impeccable. I love the colors and there isn't even one blown highlight, not even on the stones on the left of the photo. Very impressive.

Great capture with the light and the colors! I love how the different layers of light painted the scene! TFS!
