Very blue - very nice. I especially like the 2nd one.

Like the second image a lot!  Nice view well captured.

Re: Kind of Blue

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.

Re: Kind of Blue

Perfect day yesterday for taking pictures.

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

Re: Kind of Blue

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.

Re: Kind of Blue

Hi Craig

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