Cap Clouds over Mount Rainier

Postby LindaShorey » Fri Jul 14, 2017 7:10 pm

Posted by special request :) Pulled from another website; when I re-sized I lost all the exif, OY. Chuck, have you ever noticed that with BeFunky? I often do quick crops or re-sizes when on my Chromebook.

#1 was October 2014 with my bridge camera and I converted to b&w a few months later. No doubt I'd do better now if I had the original files, ha. The other two are from September 2015 with Canon T3i. Nope, didn't keep those originals either :doh:

2015 was a drought year, with very little snowfall, and Miss Rainier was looking particularly dusty and un-pretty by Sept.

For those interested, #1 was shot by Tipsoo Lake/Chinook Pass, SR 410. The other two were west of White Pass on SR 12.

Thanks for viewing!

this is something to see. WOW - very clear that these mountains create their own weather. Very cool shots Linda

Thank you Piet! Of course you can find more spectacular images by Googling, but these are my memories :)

Wow! Great cloud formation and of course over an amazing mountain.It looks great to me, I'm always so jealous of your beautiful surroundings and those magnificent clouds. The monochrome really brings out the cloud so nicely.

Thanks Minnie! It's just right time/right place and if you look at the camera-left side of #1, it was already starting to break up when I took the pic. Fortunately, I do enjoy right time/right place :)

Wow! Wow wow! And a couple more Wows. All three are amazing. I think I have a slight preference for #3 owing to its perfection. It looks as though someone took a stacked pair of dinner plates, flipped them upside down, and balanced them on the peak, just for fun. VERY impressive shots!

I confess that I have hardly ever used BeFunky. I just wait 'til I get home. I just don't feel that I can do what I want to do on the relatively small screen of a Chromebook, even though I have a 14" so I have not noticed a loss of EXIF data, but that sure would be annoying!

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

I'm so glad you enjoyed, Chuck! #3 is from a viewpoint about 10 minutes further west than #2. I was disappointed that they had let the trees grow up to where they were obscuring the mountain in many places, hence my close crop of just the left edge :)

All my online "business" is done on my Chromebook, so I might do a quick crop, or a horizontal flip, or minimal exposure adjustment when offering feedback to others. Of course those instances don't require keeping the exif. I knew these were too large for pM, which is why I re-sized on BeFunky. Maybe there's a setting I can change to retain.
