Noon Peak Hike

June 09, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

What a workout.  Still getting ready for a long August by loading up my pack with cameras, a spare set of socks, some gorp, lots of water, a tripod and away I go.  This time 5 cameras :-)  I wanted to get some time doing a timelapse.  So I went up a tough climb up the Sandwich Mtn trail to Noon Peak.  starting at just below 1500 feet and climbing upto 2950 in about 2 miles.  That is some good elevation, and boy did I feel it.  I was drawn to some of the steep parts with the trees and their roots over the boulders.   I found some interesting things as well.  Lady slipper, even a yellow one, but it was too tough to get to to get a good photo.    The pink one however looks like it is ready to make its own trek up the hill.  I loved some of the green,  the moss overtaking the rocks and downed trees.  The spots of light through the canopy.

I took 2 hours of shooting at the summit to capture enough frames for the timelapse.  I still need a couple things for making this a few steps better, a lighter tripod for one.   I enjoy the framed view from the summit with the trees and bush waving in the wind.  the clouds were really moving.

New digital for IR was fun.  I thoroughly  enjoy the trail, the black sky and the bright foliage
