Back home safe
I've safely returned from the Pacific Northwest*, and I'm too jet car-lagged to do the trip justice. In my infinite wisdom, I told my boss I'd be back to work Monday. So I crammed in as much trip as possible right up to the last minute, and got to spend a long day driving with little recovery time afterward.

Much gratitude to all of you who made my trip so awesome. (You know who you are. Names will be named.)

As a teaser for the photo goodness to come -- for those of you who haven't already seen it via lupagreenwolf, here's my epic shot of her admiring Mount Hood (from our joint Mount Chinidere hike):

So ... much ... vista


I wasn't even expecting to do that hike when I left for the Pacific Northwest, and it produced one of the best photos of the trip. :)

--
* There's a story here, too. (Nothing happened on the drive home; that's the story.) Many thanks to all those who assisted me, with special gratitude to amberite and teaotter for going beyond the call of duty.

Heh--that's actually a different shot. Mine had me looking straight on. S'okay--different angle of EPICness :)

Thanks for the company, and everything else!

So it is! I didn't look closely enough. I like this one a little better compositionally (which is why I used it), but they're both good shots.

You're welcome, and thank you as well. :) The Lupa portions of my trip were full of large amounts of awesome.

Huh, I'm getting this weird Christina's World vibe from the photo.


Glad you had a pleasant journey!

Now that you point it out, I do see that. Certainly the thematic similarity is there - the seated woman looking out toward a destination that's a lot more challenging to reach than its presence implies. Horizontally flip the photo and you even evoke the original through positioning.

Maybe that's part of what makes it such a strong shot.

Glad you are back home safe.

Will likely have more/better words when my brain is working again, which I'm hoping will be tomorrow.
