Mountain Shots


We like mountains – for the exercise, for the exhilaration of success, and for the opportunities they give for satisfying and sometimes impressive photos. Here are the spots and shots we most want to remember, most recent first. (In a couple of cases, we've relaxed the 'mountains' criterion a bit, to cover cliffs and gorges, and even some hills and islands).

Shots from May 2007 to Jun 2013 were taken with a Canon DSLR 400D and a Sigma18-200mm zoom. (For us, the lower quality inherent in a lens of that kind is more than compensated for by the flexibility it offers). Since May 2014, Linda has a Canon 700D with a Canon 18-200, and Roger a low-end Canon 1100D with the old Sigma zoom. Prior to 2007, we used a Pentax MZ-50 wet-chemicals SLR with a 28-80mm zoom, and the shots have been scanned.

Mainly so that I can keep track of what I have up on this page, here's a chronological index:
