24. Don't talk to me about extreme heat...
Edited on Tue Aug-09-11 07:32 PM by regnaD kciN
The rest of the country might be sweltering but, here in the Northwest, it's only now beginning to reach summer temperatures, after a long winter. I'm just glad that I can't enter this contest, because my standard destination for summer shooting in August is Mount Rainier and the wildflower fields around Paradise. Well, forget that -- those wildflower fields are still under several feet of snow. I'm really wondering if we're going to have the truly odd phenomenon of the wildflowers up there hitting full bloom just as the leaves are turning autumn colors this time around. It might be a unique photo opportunity, but I'd like a more extended shooting season on the mountain this year, particularly after I had to miss peak bloom last year because I was in Wyoming at the time.
