My Flickr contact Adam Bliss took this outstanding image of a mountain with the aurora borealis over it outside Lafoten, Norway.
Flickr member Ronald Cheung posted these two great landscape images of the Naeba ski area in Japan.
Rare to see mountain landscape images like this from Japan. Beautiful countryside and nicely composed and exposed images.
Flickr member Zolashine did a backpacking trip in Patagonia in Torres del Paine National Park. This is one of the more famous views and he really nailed it. Taken with a Sony A7S. Spectacular.
Flickr member Issey Niwa has posted a wonderful silhouette image of hikers on Mt. Kita in Japan taken with his Sony RX100 II.
Flickr member Maggie Osterberg has taken a magnificent picture of Mount St. Helens from the west with her Ricoh GR.
My flickr contact Rick LePage has posted a spectacular image of Mount Adams taken from White Salmon Basin in dimming light.
Many years ago I climbed all of the major volcanos in the Cascades, including Mount Adams. Spectacular place.
The New York times has a nice video piece on now 85 year old Fred Beckey: The Old Man of the Mountains.
I certainly remember reading about Beckey’s numerous first ascents in the Cascades and elsewhere when I was into climbing. The guy was and is a legend. Amazing he’s still at it.
