Some random photos from Fish Creek around Christmas/New Years 2013, all old film cameras

Olympus OM2s 35mm setting up the 1937 Zeiss folding camera for star trails, Sombrero way off in the distance



Dinner with the Trangia alcohol stove


All the rest of the photos were taken with my medium format (120 film) 1937 Zeiss folding camera and Kodak Portra 160 color film

Star Trails and Toms Headlights creating a shadow


Whale Peak Sunrise







East View Fish Creek Sunrise




Desert Wildflower beautifulness


These are two different buttes, one behind the other but the geological colors line up perfectly



Sunrise on the east face of Whale Peak from the Dave McCain Spring parking area


The mighty Fish Creek Wash heading out on my way home

I like your tripod stabilizing device. How much did you pay for that? smile

Any pics back from the Mine Wash pinhole camera yet?

I like the perspective you got on the flower photo. Looks like a nice, peaceful trip.

You noticed...haha...I just borrowed it for the evening from Mother Desert...the pinhole pictures are probably not worth posting, I didn't expose them long enough so all you see is the campfire and darkness, there are a couple ok ones of the moon though.

Daren, our paths may have crossed, I was up at the spring, a favorite place although a bit crowed now. I planned this for some time, quite apprehensive, my first real hike (I put on a day pack), to any of you this is a casual stroll, to me it took 3 hours. Packed up enough water and E supplies for 2 days in case I went down, There was a black Toyota? maybe Nissan at the old tank what you call the parking area, I never went up that far after seeing it, chose to go over the east ridge and go up wash, I was spent by the time I got to the bottom of the saddle. Plants/friends on the way

Lavender



Holly


Aster


Bladder pod


Encelia


Was not prepared for this, water tanks? tired and somewhat dissorientated, never this this before


gurgler? water trough, in dissrepair needed serious work though both alive and dead bees clogging it, loved it, I could not clean it out, running on empty




Interesting catch basin above, not well designed and silted over, but tanks were full. again if I had a shovel and any energy left I would have dug it out



tanks from above, whale in background



old catch basin I remember


Seep/spring now dry



On way down climbed only soft ground knoll with grass, sleeping circle still there bu rocks pushed around. Rested quite awhile here, number one it overlooks wash from Hapaha to Harper, great game trail and I had severe angina, got into my nitrostat.


chip still there. hunting camp, game headed for water


sleeping circle at bottom of saddle




Top of saddle, road in to spring, wash I came up to the East, went down this way, I could not worry about running into the black truck occupants who I thought were camping in the tank. Got down to bottom, truck still there but no one around, but I picked up the same size 12 new tread hiking boot track that I saw going over to Harper in the wash.



I remember first going up to spring when I was very young, I followed the pipe, could run on boulder tops then, what I called dancing, now I go a bit slower

Maybe it was your footprints we saw...! The guzzler was in good shape, almost full.
