    Looks like a great hike and you had some great light for photography. The black and whites, particularly the light coming through the trees are beautiful.

    Spring sun over the city and still so much wintry snow in the mountains – love the contrast.

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bad pic here… I love watching these places you go, you capture things that just make it feel more real somehow, I cannot explain it.
