Main Question or Discussion Point

Ain't No Mountain High Enough

This week, our theme is on MOUNTAINS. Pictures must have real mountain/s as the main subject.

Contest Rules:

1. Any digital photo or digitally-scanned photo relevant to the theme will be accepted within the contest period. In case there's a gray area, or you're not sure if the picture is suitable, check with me first.

2. Please resize your digital photo to no more than 650 x 490 or 490 x 650 pixels. You may also crop your picture if you wish. But other than that, any form of picture editing or modification is not allowed. This is a photo contest, not a picture editing/special effect contest. You may add a watermark or your name/nickname to the photo for identification purposes.

3. Upload your photos to any of the photo servers such as imageshack. Then post it the relevant contest thread and link your picture using the img command. PM me if you do not know how.

4. Only ONE picture per member per contest. Once a picture is posted, it cannot be changed other than a total withdrawl by that member from that week's photo contest. Exceptions will be made for modification to comply with the rules, such as resizing.

5. At the end of the contest period, I will open a poll and every PF member can vote for the picture they like best.

6. Note that in case we have a large number of entries, I will do the polling in more than one thread. If that's the case, you can vote in each of the polling threads. The photos will be assigned in the the polling threads in the order they were submitted.

7. These pictures must be something that you took, not something taken off someone else's photo albums or taken by someone else. I have no way of checking if you did this, so we'll go by the honor system.

8. You can use a picture only once. Once it is used in a contest, it cannot be reused in another contest.

9. Please post only pictures meant for submission in this thread.

Zz.

I took this from the flightline of Gray Army Airfield at Ft. Lewis as we were taxiing prior to take off for Mt. Rainier.

To...many...pictures...to...choose...from!
Really, I've got pictures from Yosemite, Glacier NP, North Casades NP, Mt. Rainier, Crater Lake... If the weather was clear, I could walk half a block and take a photo of Mt. Hood.

Finally decided on this photo of St. Helens.

Vacation in Kashmir recently. *puts on Led Zeppelin* The local village has been cutting down trees for heat, which you can see to the bottom left.

No, it was too high up! Its hard to tell because there is no person standing next to them, but the tombs were huge.

Thanks nutrino. Tahoe is such a beautiful lake. I am glad to have been there before the snow on the mountain melted completely.

And you thought life was tough because you've been through the desert on a horse with no name?

Well, I have no chance given all the entries already, but I did catch this contest theme before driving back home today, so braved the 20 degrees, snow, and gusting winds to snap this photo at the Sideling Hill Exhibit area in MD. This is a cut through the top of the mountain for I-68 to pass through. It's really neat to see the geology, but the view is a bit better if you cross over the walkway to the other side of the Interstate (the Eastbound side...the exhibit area is located on the Westbound side). I already thought I was going to blow off the mountain as it was, though, so didn't walk over to the other side today, and didn't stick around to snap a bunch of photos to choose from. There were much prettier views along the ride home, but no place to stop, and since it had already started snowing in the mountains, I wasn't going to delay my trip any longer.

Here's a link about the exhibit area:

If anyone is traveling that route with kids, and you know you need to make a "potty stop" anyway, it's a good place to pull off and wander around for a short time to see the exhibit area and stretch your legs before continuing on. If you pass through on a nice summer day, they also have picnic tables there.

I know where this is. You were near cumberland MD, yes?

I think those rocks are sedimentary. You can see the different layers.

That's near where the photo was taken, yes. I was closer to your neck of the woods than that, but didn't have enough time to swing by and take you up on your crabcake offer. :biggrin:
