    My wife, myself, and a friend enjoyed this ten mile hike over the weekend up to Goat Lake along Elliot Creek.

    The final destination:

    I primarily used the Voigtlander 12mm and the Canon Fdn 20-35mm f/3.5L. The Canon is a great lens for what it is. The resolution is definitely there, but it struggles with contrast in backlit situations--which is most of what we had with the sun through the trees. Still, Lightroom makes up for that a bit. I'm considering my ultra wide options right now. A Voigtlander 21mm f/1.8 might be in my future.

    Woof! I think you really captured the beauty of the NW forests, Mike. Especially with your first shot. We're lucky to live here.

    Thanks, everyone. After spending nearly two years in the midwest, it's really nice to be back on the Pacific coast with it's mountains and forests! I'm sure I'll have plenty more going forward.
