Re: 2021 Season Opening News

They didn't sell out within 10 minutes, they "sold out within minutes" for June according to the link. I translate that to within 2 minutes. Basically everyone was waiting to hit enter, and a bunch of people ready and waiting to hit enter didn't get a ticket because the servers couldn't handle the v...

Re: 2021 Season Opening News

Regarding ticketed entry. I think it's easy to see what happens. -People show up at the park and have no idea about ticketed entry. They get mad and if they're in line, it'll slow entry. -They'll show up the next morning at 5:30 am. -By mid-July, Logan Pass will be full by 6:00 or 6:30 and the peopl...

Re: Good News For Photographers

My understanding from past readings was that if you looked commercial, a ranger might stop you and ask if you had a permit. If the ranger asked, you needed it. Lots of people were pissed about that. So you have a soft box with a flash and you're taking pictures of your wife...just to keep Pete's int...

Last weekend. In 20 km, I never saw another skier.

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

Glad to hear the eye is doing well.

That's cold, even by Northern MN standards. Bring in the battery.

I can shoot wearing mittens with a thin palm. Not all functions, but the main ones. Try it at home and see if it works because -30F is too cold to take off the mittens.

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

When I worked in the darkroom, I'd print and view, then print a little different and view, and repeat ad nausium. I did the same thing with a pair of printers and digital images, but I got tired of keeping the nozzles clean and they died. Anyway, one of the problems with sending out your printing is...

Hopefully flying will get back to normal and everyone will go to Disneyland and 6-flags.

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

The purple-pink is a color you don't see in the Midwest. Money shot. Looks great. I'm a "hot sleeper." So I like it warm in the winter and have a hard time sleeping if I'm cold. I don't think I'd do well outdoors. Looked like you had it wired with the various layers. Jay 31 miles on the skis today. ...

Re: An Oldie

Another really nice image ND. I too really miss the days of simply driving to the park and getting in a campground. I'm not sure what the hell happened, but it's hard not to be driven away by the crowds.

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

Now we're talking. The snow looks great. Glad to see you're getting out and it makes me want to make the drive out. Are those skier made tracks? They look a little narrow, but the direction (lack of wobble) look like a track setter. What happened to the hair? :D You should see me. I look like a mt. ...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

Pete, I like the sunset pics and that you're cooking a steak at Apgar. Nice idea. Before checking out the chat, I was looking at traction devices. Seems appropriate. Glad you're mostly ok. About a month ago I was rollerskiing on a trail I know well. They put a 6" wide trench across the trail this su...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

I see why you hang out in that section of the creek. It's photogenic. Keep 'em coming. I'm gonna try for some Christmas lights tonight. Also, I've been wanting to try some time lapse photos, but I haven't actually tried it yet. (My camera and Go Pro actually, both have the built in features.) I like...

That's a nice yellow-orange. Kind of like a dumpster fire. :D :D it has a look like film, which makes it more impressive on a few levels.

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

Nice shots Pete. I haven't figured out a good solution for cold hands. A few years ago I bought some of the old school hand warmers that run on lighter fluid. Never used 'em. (I should pull them out and give them a whirl. I've used the chemical hand warmers but they don't do a lot. A nearby car is u...

Re: 2020 "Snaps" Around Glacier National Park

Well, cloudy weather is great weather for B&W, just sayin'. But I hear ya if it's windy. It's not much fun to take pictures in the wind. I'm kind of surprised that the park has that much snow. We've also had snow, but warm weather has eroded it away. it's still hanging on up north. No sign of Bonnie...
