I went hiking a few days ago at Mt. Rainier. There was a big cloud over the summit, so I didn't get any good shots of the mountain. Instead, here's some scenery from around the mountain.

C&C is appreciated!

Great shots! Where is the location of the last waterfall? I was hiking last weekend at Reflection Lake and plan on going back this weekend to Comet Falls.

Very nice black and white there! we don't have rocks like that around here, have to go way into the mountains by the fault zone, or over to monterey bay..

Did you have to stack em up for the the long exposure?

That's Christine Falls, which is the waterfall down the creek from Comet Falls, so you'll be right there! I also took the B&W up the creek from Christine. There are parts of the trail that come right up to the rocks of the creek, so just go off the path a little and you're right next to the creek. I found it a nice place to shoot photos.

EDIT: Sorry, my dad told me that "stack em up" meant stacking lenses, like using a neutral density filter or something. No, I didn't stack any filters onto my lens. It was in the shade, I used 100 ISO and an f-stop of 32 to try and get the shutter speed slower. It was at .4 seconds, but since the water was moving so fast I still was able to get a nice blur. I would love to get a polarizing filter, but I don't have the money for stuff like that yet. Heck, I'm still using my Canon 300D with a kit lens!

Very nice images, Kevin!

You may consider posting them over in the Nature & Landscape portion of this forum, as they may be a better fit there than here in the Wildlife section. Nonetheless, I'm glad you posted them.
