Getting Down by IvanAndreevich Getting Down by IvanAndreevich
The 2012 landscape calendar is now available. Check it out!

This is where I like to parttttyyy. Much more fun than drinking, going to clubs, etc.

There's a bit of a story behind this shot. After climbing the Black Tusk on the way down, we realized that the sunset is a full hour earlier than we thought it was! There was absolutely no way for us to get back down in time before darkness. Result? Running the last 7 km through the forest in complete darkness. Ever since then, I always carry a flashlight, and you should too.

Location: The way to Black Tusk, Garibaldi Provincial Park, Beautiful British Columbia, Canada.
Equipment: Olympus C-8080WZ - this was seriously a better camera than my old Sony A100 with the kit lens. The lens on the Olympus is freaking awesomely sharp.
Processing: Panorama from 10 JPEG photos stitched via PTGui 9.1 and processed in Photoshop CS5.

Much more dangerous for breaking your leg or rolling your ankle on some rock!

This is so gorgeous! I always adore the colors in your shots, and the blue and white here make a stunning contrast.

I think every outdoorsy person finds themselves really wishing they'd thought to bring a flashlight at some point in their life. At least you were caught without one in a forest, and not up above a cliff somewhere!

If I got stuck at the top of Black Tusk with no light, a flashlight wouldn't help LOL.
