Mountains, where art thou?

I need my mountain fix. Badly. It has been sometime since I have actually had a chance to enjoy in mountains. Man, I do miss them. For a guy who grew up by the ocean, I never really expected mountains to have such a profound effect on me. But ever since I set foot in the Rockies a couple of years back, all I have been thinking of has been mountains and more mountains. I mean, it’s not even funny, I see a mountain shot and I just cringe, not because I don’t like it, but really because I am just dying to be there so badly. I am really considering taking Darwin Wiggett’s winter workshop in february but have to figure a few details out before I know if I can make it. If you have a chance check him out. The guy is one of Canada’s premiere landscape photographer and great guy to boot.

In the meantime, all you get from me is a few shots from my Rockies trip in 2007…

    Ah – them tips are on FIRE! I’ve never been too close to the Rockies. Over them, sure, but Vancouver city was about as good as it got for me.

    I am moving from Arkansas to Boulder, Colorado in less than two weeks. I cannot wait to see the mountains every day. The days have been long since I’ve spent much time near them and never again will I take them for granted.

    I know how you feel! I grew up in a flat country and now that I live relatively close to the mountains, I would miss them like crazy if I had to move back. Our mountains here in Sweden are not nearly as impressive as the Rockies of course, but enough to give me my mountain fix. :)

    Wonderful pictures here, especially the middle one is a real stunner!

  5. Having lived in Calgary for 5 years, I know what you mean. Not much mountains to speak of when I moved to Toronto. Now, everytime I visit Canada from the land down under, I make a point of spending some time in the Rockies.

    I quite like the last one, the lifting fog and great reflection are magic.

    Wow, all the shots are inspirational and make me want to hop in my car and drive to the Rockies!
