the first one is definitely my favorite. I'm not sure if the second or third count as "landscapes," but here they are!

Lovely! Could you describe how you planned and executed the shot?
I like to go climb Mt Hood (Oregon, USA) in the winter.  The hardest part is picking a good weather window.  Usually in the winter alpen glow is MUCH nicer than in the summer.  I attribute this to the fact that it RAINS and SNOWS all winter in Oregon, so when you get a clear day, the air is nice and crisp from frequent scrubbings.  This was taken of the ridge above White River Glacier at about 9,500 ft, a couple minutes after sunrise.

This is one of the top-five most climbed mountains in the world, but in winter you are often all alone.  The only people up there were me and my three climbing parters.

This was shot with the Canon 50mm f/1.4 lens, which is my mountaineering lens of choice!  f/2.8, 1/125s, ISO 100.  5D Mk III body.  This light comes and goes so quickly that there isn't much time for a tripod, so having f/1.4 available is helpful.  If the rumors of a 50mm f/1.4 IS are true, I will be in HEAVEN.
Thank you. Gives me a great perspective of your effort. How high do you need to climb to get to this point?

The parking lot is at about 6,000 ft, so about another 3,500 ft of gain.  It's quite steep, from the parking lot to the summit is over 5,000 ft of gain in 3.6 miles.
Wow! That is some climb. Thanks for sharing.

WOW...High praise. Thanks!
Funny...I was on my way to my favorite indoor location one morning with a photo buddy and I saw this scene across the way..The loader and the steam...I spun the car around and slapped on my 70-200 2.8 IS II and 1.4x, got the lens up and just at that moment this giant Catapillar dump truck dropped a load of coal upwind, releasing this massive pile of steam that floated across over the loader!?!?!?..all backlit by the sun..we were hooting...it was like a delicious meal...it was such a timing thing...and I was the only one with a camera in my hand....Thanks for noticing!

This is the Grand Canyon at sunrise. I'm not a pro by any means, but it turned out pretty good..

Where was this taken? Reminds me of a board-walk in Lytham (Lancashire, UK) near the windmill and boathouse on the green.
