Monday Mountains (8)

Snowcapped Pyramid
Snowcapped Pyramid | Washington | 2018

I haven’t done a “Monday Mountain” in quite a while, but I thought I show off this photograph of a rugged, snowcapped peak in the Northern Cascades. Unless previous episodes, where I wrote about particular mountains, I have no clue how this peak is called. If anyone recognizes this quite distinctive shape and has an idea, please leave the name in the comment section.

Image specs are 1/800 sec @ f/7.1 and ISO 200, focal length was 100mm (200mm focal length full frame equivalent). The photo was taken with my OM-D E-M1 and the mZuiko 12-100mm F/4 Pro Zoom a few minutes after takeoff in Seattle, on our way towards Canada, while we were still climbing to cruising altitude.

I finally got home from Portland at Saturday evening, in the middle of a little snow storm. And I made the birthday party with only one hour of delay.  Next time I set a foot into an airplane it will be for a week of vacation in NYC with the Significant Other. Less than three weeks to go. Life is not too bad 😉

Wish you all a great week!

  1. Beautiful photo! I was wondering what camera do you use to take your photos? Currently for my own blog I am using just an I-phone and was wondering if you have found benefits of using an actual camera?

    1. Thanks, Zach, much appreciated! Although I do shoot with my iPhone (6s), I much prefer having a camera with me, as the bigger sensors capture much more tonal information, especially as I prefer shooting in RAW. And while I love the panorama possibilities of my phone camera, optical zoom is still non-existing or pretty much sucks in a phone camera. So when I want to zoom in, I rely on my camera and the lenses I have. I use the Olympus m4/3 mirrorless system. Light, small (compared to full frame DSLR’s) but with sublime image quality. Olympus has a wide range of cameras, from the entry OM-D E-M10 Mark II to the Flagship E-M1 Mark II. Hope this helps! Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you need more info! Marcus

  2. It’s a beautiful peak Marcus! I hope somebody can give you insight into its name! Yay, no more plane rides for a bit. Enjoy the reprieve. 🙂 – Amy

  3. Another splendid photo Marcus. It’s so nice that your next US trip will be for a holiday. New York is such an exciting city so I’ll look forward to your photos and we still have Easter first to look forward too. M.

  4. I love this feature! We live in British Columbia so can some of the Cascades as well as Mt. Baker. We have Mt. Cheam that many people know. I couldn’t live where there weren’t mountains!
