Pictures for Pam, Day 177: Upper Klamath Lake Scenery

Pictures for Pam, Day 177: Upper Klamath Lake Scenery
(+4 insets!)

Holy cow, Steve and I were so busy today! We were out doing errands until dinner and then we had a bunch of stuff to do and ack! It's after 8 and I haven't written my post! Eeek! Eeek!

I have been trying to get my scenery images finished from our trip to Upper Klamath Lake because I'm afraid that if I don't get them done now, they will be swept away by the never-ending river of pictures that keep on coming. We'll be leaving on our next trip tomorrow and so I'm just about out of time. Yes, I can go back and process more down the road, but it also might not happen.

I actually finished more pictures than I'm posting today but these are all different enough that I can put them together into one presentation. Also, the type of picture is the same and I don't want to water down the beauty of the scenery.

Our canoe trip on the Upper Klamath River Canoe Trail was about 5 miles in distance and we spent about 3.5 hours on the water. The views were just breathtaking and it was so relaxing out there that it felt like a state of meditation every time we were quietly paddling along. The peaceful, calming sounds of the water splashing as we stroked, the whooosh-splash as the front of the canoe cut a path through the water…it was wonderful. In the distance, hidden by the marsh, sometimes overhead, we heard the sounds of endless birdlife, many of which we'd never heard before and couldn't imagine what they might even look like. The warm sun on our faces, the breeze dancing through our hair, the smell of the lake and grasses, it all swirled together into an experience that can really only be understood if you are there. It was magical and so special…what a totally fulfilling day in every way.

As the afternoon passed by, Steve realized that we needed to pick up the pace or we would arrive later than we were supposed to be out--4 hours--so we began to paddle in earnest. We only stopped a couple of times to take pictures, and one sight that I insisted on photographing was the main picture that you see today! The clouds were moving in front of the sun more and more as time went on and at one point I looked up and saw them edge-lit so perfectly, and to top it off, there was a magnificent reflection. I was over the moon when I looked at my pictures and found that this set had turned out as I had hoped. :)

I am also including four insets to give you a better idea of what the views were like as we traveled along. I hope you enjoy the show--I only wish that each of you could have been out there with us taking in these vistas! :) (Sorry about the difference in exposures, I'm still working out the bugs!)

Pam, I did another search for "lake" on your stream and this time I picked your Broken Bow Lake image! What a lovely image. Lakes make such wonderful photography subjects and your shot is truly lovely. Here's hoping that you had a good day today!! *BIG HUGS* :D

Explored on 5/6/19, highest placement, #4.

Votre photo principale est magnifique avec ce beau reflets des nuages sur l'eau dans un paysage de rêves ! Les encarts sont tout simplement majestueux avec une préférence pour le Pip #2 et les reflets des arbres qui soulignent la profondeur de l'image ! Je vous souhaite une bonne semaine Janet !

A magnificent set of images from your canoe trip Janet...............the main image is beautifully composed with heavenly light and wonderful reflections. I love your composition too.

The PiPs are all superb, without exception. My fave has to be the last one, of Mt McLoughlin!

Sorry for the slightly rushed post, but I've been unable to comment for a day or two and I want to catch up with as many people as I can this afternoon.

Oh wow Janet - these are absolutely breath-taking. I'm not in the least surprised that you have a wonderful time rowing on that gorgeous lake. It looks so calm and the snow on the tops of the mountains only enhance the beauty there. I just love your explanation of the sounds etc - I could almost hear the sounds of the oars on the water, and the birds in the trees. Amazing. I would have really loved to have visited that place - it's so beautiful there.

So you're off again into the unknown with the RV - there's no stopping you two now is there? Have a wonderful time. Looking forward to seeing your pictures. Love and hugs x

This main shot is magnificent (I will have to wait til I get to a desktop to access the PIPs) but the sense of quiet solitude and scale is absolutely beautiful. The reflections are cracking ones too :)
