My 2023 Nature Calendar is now available!

Mt. Shuksan Panoramas

1. Picture Lake. Thought I’d include the whole 360° panorama here – there are 1000’s of shots of Picture Lake and Mt. Shuksan out there on the internet – this shows the spot most have been taken from. I should probably go back when the fall color is in to make the whole scene look nice.

23 exposures stitched – Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM.

2. Shuksan Arm. There may be a better name for this ridge but I haven’t been able to find it via google maps/earth.

4 exposures stitched – Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 macro.

This little Gray Jay (Perisoreus canadensis) at first made me think he was a rare opportunity but quickly proved to be rather tame – and not shy about begging for a handout.
