Weekly Photo Challenge: One shot, two ways

For the The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge “One shot, two ways” I waited for an opportune moment to try my hand. That moment arrived over the weekend when we decided to head up to the Mt. Baker Wilderness area for a mid-day hike. We first stopped off at the ranger station to check in and get our parking permits. Out back of the main building, this is what we saw:

Picture Lake was our next stop on our way up the mountain.  On clear days, the scenery is simply stunning, where Mt. Shuksan appears in duplicate, as a perfect reflection can be seen in the glassy water of the little alpine lake. That’s not what we saw though. Rather, the entire mountainside was banked in mist, but the glassy water did still reflect the trees along the banks.

And on the backside of the lake, we were struck by the mystical scene pictured here. I wouldn’t have been surprised at all to see a magical boat emerge from the mist, silently transporting the lady of the lake herself.

Once we reached Artist’s Point, we gathered up our packs and started to climb. Though it’s August, patches of snow are still abundant. What fun to hike in short sleeves, alternately crunching through snow and traipsing through rocky trails. Lovely sights, all around!

Though we didn’t make it all the way up to Table Mountain, we all had a ball – all 12 of us! A remarkable and wonderful group spanning three generations ranging in age from nearly-6 to 71!

Back to the challenge though — which images do you like better, the landscapes, or the portraits? I find that it depends on the shot.
