One might say you shot a bit of the blue.  I actually like the first one, nicely framed capture.  And the second one is a keeper as well.  Out of camera, whenever possible, is always a good choice in my book.

Perfect day yesterday for taking pictures.

The snowshoeing was tough (icy), but the hike from the road to the lake was worth it.

The hike to Skunk Harbor from Highway 28 is about a 1.5 mile hike each way (drop of about 600 ft).  I usually put one lens on for the trip down and a second lens for the hike up to the highway.

First photo was shot with the 35-100mm.  I recently picked this one up on ebay.  This is the first time I had really taken it on a hike.  My eyes went straight to this picture immediately after I downloaded it.  My unscientific test of the SHG.

Second photo was shot with the 11-22mm.  This oft overlooked lens is really a pretty good lens.  In its range, it is better than the 12-60mm.

Hi Craig

I too prefer the second one, its just seems better balanced to me. Certainly blue and looks pretty cold to me.
