Just going through some photos and thought I'd post some random stuff. Some of it recent, some of it not. Some of it climbing related, some of it not...

The photo threads are one of the best things about this forum, IMO... So, post up!

My climbing partner in Bishop - he was recently stolen by a pink-haired girl.

Another view of a small section of the valley...

Ira Latour - One of the Grand Masters of photography and my photo mentor

Those are some fine photos and I agree, the pics are some of the best threads.
Unfortunately most of my climbing ones are not with me. However here are a few random ones that have absolutely nothing to do with climbing


Gulmarg, Kashmir



Jama Masji, Old Delhi India


Smoke Break


From above Nanital, India


One of those are mine...

I thought I'd give you-all the bird.






I was mowing the lawn last summer when I found this black capped chickadee that was in some long wet grass and not looking so good. So picked him up and carried him towards the house. It seemed to warm up and dry off enough and ended up flying off.

actually eKat, it is an interesting demonstration of the inverse color of the purple (or what ever that color is) dots in you persistent vision. The green non-dot is the color complement. It is why your picture is so wonderfully pleasing to look at, the kayak color is probably nearly inverse of the background colors, giving a very strong color-contrast. The way we process visual information likes high contrast with wide tonal ranges...

...so you can barf, but it is strangely compelling to watch the dots go around... just look that wonderful kayak scene instead.

Nice. I had never heard of the place, but I was in the area on my way home from Panama and stopped in for a visit. Have you run a lot of whitewater down there? I've been tossing around the idea of running the Usumacinta river down on the mexico guatemala river in my 16' oar rig.

I didn't ride buses down there, but I found more than a few ways to get lost driving around that area between Papantla and Poza Rica. Not many road signs, so its a lot of dead reckoning navigation.

Next time you walk out to swinging bridge from the SDA camp, keep your eye on the right side of the dome, the arrow will come into view.

I remember this canyon to the left of the arrow that had some steep splitter cracks in it. I just never got around to checking it out.

Hey, thanks, kubok!3! That is my then girlfriend, Marisa. I rather like that image too. I'd just gotten myself out of waist/chest-high quicksand and was cleaning myself and gear off. She had walked out on the flats and was sitting out there, doing her thing, and I thought it was a magical moment.

You're right of course. I passed through Pinnacles recently for just a few hours, for the

Coyote Ugly was the funnest-sounding route I saw on a quick scan of Mountainproject
from our motel the night before.

In fact it was plenty fun, though I've no idea how it compares with whatever else we might
have chosen. For those not so Pinnacles-savvy, here is Matthew Fienup's beta photo

I went out looking for a cardio work out and some blue plastic ice for my climbing partner and came up with these last night. One of the best evenings out this year. The ice I found, possibly FA material.


And lunchtime view, oops later than it should be.



But the sunset made the whole 6 hour approach worth every step.


And I cannot figure out how to get good color out of the point and shoot, this was the alpinglow that was very purple, but after shooting about 10 frames only came up with this, which is not what the eye saw. Anyone know what I can do different?



Enjoy,

I'm thinking it was perhaps a mating ritual, I dunno. I was out hiking at lunch and happened to have the p&s w/ me so took some snapshots. I've come across a variety of prints in the snow, but that was the first time to come across such a display.

I did get some pics of a grizzly bear's prints this fall, but haven't uploaded them yet. Somewhat un-nerving to go on a solo day hike and to come across the fresh tracks of at least 1/2 doz different bears, though mostly black bears.

Random photos you say...

This orchid was a gift from a friend last year. It was in bloom then, but withered soon after. I was away most of the summer and when I got home I thought the plant was gone. I trimmed it back to the base, we re-potted it and watered it with little bits of warm water every few days in the morning sun.

Here it is yesterday morning.

Mungeclimber we went out on the day with the idea we would climb it really fast and sunny but it had snowed recently on the Eiger or it hadn't all melted from that section. The fog rolled in while we were on the peak and made it like pretty eerie. We never got that scared feeling though as it was just fog and would roll in and out. Above that was a beautiful layer of blue.

It was a pretty easy Ferrata.

Ha MIke ,

I ran across this pic....


This from a time when the game and fish bought thousands of pounds of Alabama farm raised catfish in the 3-5 ponud range and stocked a local lake.......only they for got to put a limit on them. Some of the more 'savy' locals walked with over a hundred of them some nights. We ate some good catfish that year. We never abused that limit, but ate well. Next year the limit was four.

Converting a camera to infrared (IR)

All digital cameras can sense IR but they have a little filter in front of the lens that blocks the IR so your photos look natural. All you have to do is take the filter out (it's called a hot mirror) and replace it with either a clear glass or something that blocks all or most visible light.

There are services that will do this for $200 and up but if you aren't too picky about results and are handy with little parts, it isn't too hard to do for free. The hardest part is getting the camera apart and back together again. Luckily, there are lots of geeks on the internet who like to take cameras apart and post step by step instructions. Sometimes you can find service manuals, parts lists or exploded parts diagrams that help.

STEP 1
Find, borrow, steal or buy on ebay the cheapest digital point and shoot you can find for your first project. I had a Canon A550.

STEP 2
Take it apart until you can get at the sensor. Sometimes you get at this from the back and sometimes from the lens side.

STEP 3
Find and remove the hot mirror. It's a little piece of glass that looks almost clear. Mine was about a centimeter across.

STEP 4
Find something to replace the hot mirror with. I used a piece of very over exposed and developed color negative film. When you get a roll of film processed, the tail that hangs out in the light when you load the camera. It will look pretty much black after developing. I've seen people cut a piece of the magnetic disc from inside an old floppy. A piece of black garbage bag might work. Hopefully it is about the same thickness as the old hot mirror (mine was 0.009 inches thick).

STEP 5
Put the camera back together. Usually harder than getting it apart. Like down climbing. I hate that term down climbing, I prefer to call it unclimbing. "I climbed the pitch and then I unclimbed the pitch."

STEP 6
Go take pictures. They will look pretty weird right out of the camera. If your filter is good at blocking all visible light, it will probably be red and black. My filter seems to let some visible spectrum through so of RGB I get some red and green but not much blue.

The leaves and clouds reflect the IR but the sky is cool and dark. Seems to work best in full sunlight. Best cloud pictures ever. It seems to see more clouds than the eye.

this is neat Banquo,

an interesting little aside, the detectors in most digital cameras are CCDs and they lose sensitivity by around 8000A=800nm. This is considered the red end of the optical part of the spectrum, not the true infrared that is usually defined to start at around 1micron=1000nm. For sure the light in these "infrared" images is reflected red light not emitted infrared from the objects in the scene.

Mike, very true.

I think this is more correctly called near infrared photography and shouldn't be called thermal imaging. I've shamelessly snatched some plots off the net, one for CCD's and one for visible. A bit confusing because the scales are reversed.

When I hold my filter up to sunlight, I can't see through it so I think the camera is capturing something outside the visible range. Pretty crude filter and camera so it's hard to say what the image spectral range is. I suspect it is partly in and partly out of at least my visible range. The lens glass also filters and may have coatings.

I suppose visible range varies from person to person.

The images remind me of moonlight. I'm too lazy to research this but it may be that moonshine is in the near infrared.

The two images posted here were taken at f2.6 1/640 and ISO 200 in full sunlight. This is maybe 3 stops down from a "normal" camera so there is a fair amount of light getting through my black filter.

Edit:
Chlorophyll has absorption peaks in the blue range and in the orange-red range. The bright white of the leaves in my pictures is light beyond 750 nm. The green we see is the light between 450 and 650 nm which is reflected.
