I took these photos on one of my favorite hikes ever: Oyster Dome in the Chuckanut Mountains last April. My friend Archana and I caught one of the first sunny spring days. As you can see, there were some amazing views of the San Juan islands.
I remember being somewhat heartbroken when I picked up the prints. I hadn’t meant to do a silhouette (although I like it more now). And, the sunspot in the middle of the frame *killed* me.
But last night, I took out the sunspot, blended away the negative scratches… and lighted the tone a bit. It was pretty cool. Now, if only Nikon had an (affordable) full frame digital SLR…
