Summer SolstASS Ultra

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

Well, this certainly a delayed post.

I got out and photographed the local Summer SolstASS Ultra on Silver Star Mountain during…naturally the Summer Solstice.

I got to meet some Ultra Running local legends early in the morning: Bob Baker and  Joe Yela.

The views from Ed’s Trail were a real eye opener!

This ridge depicted in the above was part of the 50K segment.

Looking North was not a disappointment either:

Here is the final batch of photos from the excellent event under the expanding Ultra Gallery.

The only non-iPhone shot I got today while out on Silver Star Mountain today.    It was a chilly one, if I had more time I would have gone for a pano with the GigaPan.  Another time perhaps.

 

Excited for my webmaster to get this restructuring of my site complete.  I thank him for the work he does with the themes on this site.  We will be going with a lighter theme soon.

 

Don’t forgot to contact me directly for any prints of my photos.

 

Here’s some older photos to enjoy:

Now 2012 it got put here in the stairwell to the Raven’s Nest at Timberline Lodge:

Thank you to my Wife for clicking the shutter...however, it's a bit difficult to pre-focus at f/2.8 when you're not in the frame.  Thank you to my Grandpa for the much taller tripod!
