Okay, was thinking to upload some of these anyway. This is one of spectacular location with spectacular cloud formations. It made me feel even more spectacular because of the depth of shaded area (visible with naked eye) with the outset of cumulonimbus cloud development. Alas, the film can't capture quite the detail in the shade like I saw with my eyes - always rendering this type of images to convince people………. Are they too bluish?? The place is outlook location for cities of Lewistong, ID (left) and Clarkston, WA (right), bisected by Snake River (Top and right) and Clearwater River (left), overlooking south from point 2 on the map (inverted for easier attribution). I don't think I used polarizer on any of them, but the depth of blue was quite noticeable. I actually like them, but are they too bluish??
