Logan’s Shots from Mt. St. Helens

When Dawn and her family returned from camp, they suggested we all go down to Mt. St. Helens for the day. Logan wanted to bring his camera, so I decided to leave mine home. As soon as we arrived at the Visitor’s Center, I regretted that decision (even though I sometimes find hiking with an extra 10 pounds of camera equipment in steep country too demanding) because the wildflowers were in full bloom.

Since Logan only had a 100mm-300mm lens, I showed him how to take several shots and photomerge them.

All of the rest of the shots in this blog entry are my favorite Logan shots of the day. Although no longer known as Indian Paintbrush, Indian Paintbrush was in full bloom,

as were the daisies and lupine.

Lupine and Daisies

I don’t think I would ever have thought of shooting this clover (?) but I really like the subtle colors in this shot


as well as in this shot.


Although I didn’t take this shot, I encouraged Logan to take it.


I hope I didn’t miss any of Logan’s favorite shots of the day. I suspect he would have made some different choices than I did in selecting shots, but I hope the ones I chose were representative of what he saw.

I’m certainly glad Logan insisted on taking his camera. I suspect he saw more than he otherwise might because he did take it. I know I did.
