    I'm very lucky. I can hop on my motorcycle and ride to Oregon's only National Park and be back home by dinner.

    Beautiful scenery and pictures. Usually panos do nothing for me, but I really like this #1!

    Beautiful! You are lucky, indeed. I visited last summer and people who see the pics and haven't been there can't believe that the water is actually that blue!

    Thanks all.

    I brought them along, Nick. But you're right. I'm not sure I'm going to find any use for them anymore.

    It really is! Part of the color comes from it being the deepest lake in the U.S., but the water is also just snowmelt and rain. There is no river or creek that flows into the caldera, and you can't boat or swim in the lake (other than one tourist boat that takes people out to Wizard Island), so the water is extremely pure.

    Very nice! I need to go back one day for another try; I took a detour there while I was driving through Oregon, but it was snowing and you could barely see the lake (in June, I did not expect that).

    Looks like you've got a nice travel pair with the 24-240 and Loxia 21. :thumbup:

    One of the first things I learned after moving here 21 years ago: there is no bad weather, only bad clothes.
    I had the 16-35 with me as well. But even at 16mm it wouldn't capture the whole lake. Besides, the 21 is just more fun right now. :)

    Great stuff! Bucket list sort of sight... for those of us unfortunate enough to not live near Oregon.
