Evolute's Outdoors Photo Thread - 09/18/08 08:41 AM

Since I get a lot of requests to show pictures, I thought you folks might enjoy a consolidated place to see some. I thought I'd start my own thread, since I didn't want to clog up the Outdoors and Fieldcraft thread.

I'll add a bunch of pictures over time. Enjoy.

Here's the Gates of The Valley in Spring:

Looking at the amazing quality and colors of your photography reminds me of when I was a kid and at night I'd climb in bed and look at the cool pictures in my "Viewfinder" <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

The Alabama Hills are in California, at the foothills of the Sierras, in front of the Whitney Portal (the entry toward Mount Whitney). Near the town of Lone Pine, IIRC.

I have few regrets in my life , I traveled far and wide, but I would have enjoyed these places more if I taken the time. The Military sends you to exotic places , pays you to go and do things....but it seem like another world compared to these photos. There is beauty every where if you take the time to REALLY look.

Re: Evolute's Outdoors Photo Thread - 06/13/09 09:39 PM

It's a pretty profoundly observant note that you made, AA. Yes, the beauty is all around us. We often are so self-absorbed or consumed that we don't take it in. Every breath is a gift, and every glimpse or perspective is unique within the universe, be it grim or surreal. I am trying to simply observe and treasure it all more, and be a little less critical of things that I find unsettled. Evo's pics are cathartic to me in this perspective. It sounds like they may be to you, as well.
