[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The ridge hike we did from Ling Lake wasn't all that great landscape photo-wise. Lots of high cloud didn't make for very captivating landscape shots, so I focused more on the close-up stuff where the even scattered light worked well.
There's alot of this kind of scruffy bush along the ridges and is very difficult to try and hike through. Fortunately we were able to skirt around this stuff, but the branches I find are particularly interesting. I turned the camera about 20 degrees on this shot in order to make the composition a bit more square.

Very artistic and interesting. Great composition and study in lines and curves and shadows.

It reminds me a "left overs" from my "had to cut down an 80 foot tree" days to stay warm time of life. The patterns are well understood and yes hard to get through. Sort of like my mind. Well presented in an "orderly chaotic" way.
