Route Pages - PHOTO STASH

Postby BillMiddlebrook » Thu Sep 07, 2006 6:06 pm

Each time I climb a peak I take between 250 and 1,000 photos, so I figured it was time to put a few more to good use! So, I will be adding a lot more, larger photos to the 14ers.com routes descriptions. The photos will not have route overlays or notations, but they will be presented in the order in which they were taken during a climb. Look for the Photo Stash tab in the route description. If a route doesn't have them yet, the tab will not be active. Adding these larger photos to all of the routes will take some time so I'll be adding them through the winter.

I've started by adding 52 high-resolution photos on the Capitol Knife Edge route - http://www.14ers.com/routemain.php?rout ... tol%20Peak

Here's a sample of the resolution:

I changed the stash page to display thumbnails or a slideshow. To change the display, look for View: Thumbnails | Slideshow on the top right. When I can get back to it in a few days, I'll probably tweak it a bit so there is less back and forth when using the thumbnails.

In addition to Capitol, I just added a ton of stash photos on the following pages:
Maroon Peak - South Ridge Route
Castle Peak - NE Ridge Route
Pyramid Peak - NE Ridge Route
Snowmass Mountain - West Slope Route

Wow, these are awesome. I can hardly believe that you take so many pictures during some of these climbs. This is a great addition and this site rocks hard core. :D I especially like your Chicago Basin ones.

To erase the strain of effort from faces of the past,
And resurrect slight triumphs as glories unsurpassed...

Ooh! Little Bear! I was waiting for lots more pictures of that route to assess the Hourglass.

I know it sounds crazy, but I take a load of photos with several cameras on each climb. On average, I probably take about 500 photos on a peak. When I did Longs last year I took over 800. Usually about 100-200 are taken on the summit, which includes a lot of photos that I use to create 360-degree summit panoramas.

How do I find the time? I guess I shoot fast. If you talked to people I've climbed with, I'm sure they would tell you I'm always taking pictures. Because I usually start very early, I take most of the photos on the descent.

For fast access to the routes that now have a photo stash, I've added the following page that can also be accessed from the Quick Link area of the home page...
