Discussion in 'Landscape' started by Leslie Reid, Jul 17, 2019.

  1. You are invited to upload one or more of your landscape photos and, if you’d like, to accompany your image with some commentary: challenges you faced in making the image? your intent for the image? settings? post-processing decisions? why you did what you did? the place and time? or an aspect you’d like feedback on? And please feel free to ask questions of others who have posted images or to join the discussion. If you don’t feel like using words, that’s OK too—unaccompanied images (or unaccompanied words, for that matter) are also very much welcomed. As for the technicalities, the usual forum guidelines apply: files < 1 MB; image size <1000 px maximum dimension.

    So there I was, innocently minding my own business and studiously working to figure out what angle best showed off the light on the field of flowers, when I got photo-bombed by a Great Blue Heron.

  15. I lived in Butte County (Paradise and Chico) in the '70's and visited a couple of times afterwards. Upper Bidwell Park was an amazing place with the best swimming holes in the area. I explored a lot of rivers and waterways and was always on the lookout for the ultimate swimming hole. One of my favorites in the area of your image required a shimmy down through a narrow space between the basalt cliffs. There was a long tree root that acted as a rope. After the descent there was a lot of other rock climbing, and finally the arrival at a very deep, long, and crystal clear version of nature's own olympic pool. There weren't a lot of people around back then and I often had a nice swimming hole to myself all day. I still get upset about the fire, but my memories of the area are intact. I hope upper park is as nice now as it was back then.
