Mr Yang's "Skills" As A Mountain Photographer


Dehui Yang captured the above photo of Molas Lake while camped above Silverton last week. We feel privileged that he shared some of his best "vacation" shots of our personal "stomping grounds." BCB readers are overdue for some quality photos shot through someone else's eye… someone (gulp) maybe even better than your's truly… so I thought it would be nice to share Dehui's photos with you. The majestic mountains pictured and reflected in Molas Lake are called the "Needles," located in the heart of the Grenadier Mountain Range. It's home to three fourteen thousand foot peaks, Eolus, Windom, and Sunlight, all of which we've summited. A stellar shot, Dehui. 


John Q rolled into town a few days ago for his annual hiking visit, this time bringing along his newly retired "better half," Joalenn. But that post can wait a couple of days; I've got to get ready to be treated to dinner at Ouray's fine Mexican Food establishment, the Bien Tempo. I recommend the Spinach Enchiladas with grilled chicken. Trust me, opt for the Red Sauce over the Green…you'll be glad you did :))

Now for Dehui Yang's beautiful slide show…for once, I'm in a few pictures :)

  8. Mark, the photos are great and I enjoyed seeing you and Bobbie in more photos. More importantly, it is great seeing you both up and out on the trails meaning you are both on the mend. Hopefully we can all stay healthy for a while.

  11. Those photos make me want to wallow in the wildflowers until I am intoxicated, then jump in Ice Lake to sober up.

  14. Beautiful photos. John at RVino posts today about the natural scenery of northern Idaho. On the same day, you post more photos of wild flower season in Ouray. The decision is where to make my 2015 travels. Too much (beauty) to see. Too little time.

  15. I'm curious.......was Mr. Yang tri-poding these superb photos??

    1. I never saw him with a tripod. The anti shake software in newer camera's nowadays is getting pretty sophisticated. He was manually focusing tho…which always helps define and pop the subject.

  16. Mark, I bet your blog has greatly contributed to Lovely Ouray's tourism, especially during this fabulous month of July when wildflowers seem to peak there. I count myself among your many readers who dream of doing that hike and getting that shot!

  17. Interesting to see your "backyard" through someone else's eyes. Love how he featured the Columbine.
