Mt St Helens, with first snow, 22Oct2016

I had a nice clear day in October with no plans. I decided to go visit Mt St Helens for the first time in years.

I was particularly lucky in being there on a clear day without haze. And just after the first snowfall of the year.

It was really windy. I was being blown around enough that I used a tripod. I set the zoom at about 100mm and took a series of 7 images and used Photoshop to stitch them together. There is an incredible amount of detail. I had a 24×60 print made that is on the wall above my work table.

Camera: Nikon D810
Lens: Nikon 28-300mm set at 98mm
ISO 100    1/400sec    f/8
