    Sorry - this should have gone under "scenic, architectural, and travel" - if any of you mods want to move it, please do

    Just basic scenery shots, probably cliched, but when the scenery is this pretty, cliches are OK by me.

    First two are shots of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains, from Boston Harbor, WA:

    WB_adjusted. WB_adjusted_1_.

    These are through a plane window of:

    Mt. Ranier (with Mt. Hood in the distance)

    Mt. Ranier with Mt. St. Helens in the background

    Mt. Adams with Mt. Hood in the distance (the east slopes of Ranier in the right part of photo)

    What fantastic scenery, Ray. Why do certain types of shot become cliches? Because they are popular and delightful to the eye, that's why. Experimenting and trying something new is always great, but there's nothing wrong with a good cliche! :smile:

    The shots taken out of the plane window remind me of the scenery I witnessed on a flight from Equador to Peru many years ago as we flew down the line of the Andes, good stuff.
