 Mount Adams via west ridge - a miniature Crestone Needle   

I had a very enjoyable climb up Mount Adams and UN 13,580 with my friend Ethan. I really love Willow Lake and the surrounding area - it was great to return to the area!

If you'd like, take a look at my trip report on my website. Thanks for reading!

Hi - the trick for me is to shoot all in RAW format and then I use programs like Photomatix for HDR and Lightroom to add contrast and vibrancy. Actually, in Lightroom, you can adjust the hue, saturation, and brightness of every color.

From someone who likes to play with programs and pics - that last pic is wild (sky/atmosphere).
