    OK. Let's see your wilderness and back country photos. The first below is Bunker Lake and Bruce Mountain in the Bob Marshall Wilderness (Swan Range), and the second is Doctor Lake also in the BMW. Todd

    Cool thread idea, and close to my heart since I usually go camping about once a month, though I'm running behind the past few months! Here's some of my favorites that are from backcountry areas (i.e. not campsites or tours):

    Round Valley Recreation Area, Readington NJ. This is right near my house, and I've camped here several times. This one is from an overnight trip the night before hurricane Sandy hit NJ, IIRC.

    Saranac Lake, NY (Floodwood Pond area) from a canoe trip. One of the most beautiful sunrises I've ever seen. Everything covered in hard white frost and turning cool blue to orange and pink as the sun rose.

    The sunrise was matched by the sunsets that trip as well.

    I have the luxury of living within an hour drive of beautiful landscape. I really should get out more often. Going to Lake Louise this weekend, hopefully I'll catch some good light.


    You can notice the corners of the 12-50 being a bit soft from this shot but that's besides the point.

    Tranquil basin and the Missouri

    I'll throw two more out there. Disclaimer - these were shot with my E-420.

    Tranquil basin in the Bob Marshall Wilderness. Glacier National Park in the distance.

    +1 on that!

    NZ was possibly the most beautiful place I've been yet! I actually got my first quality camera (GF2) so I could take better pics to remember that trip by :smile:

    Living here you kind of take the scenery for granted until people from places you'd consider to be scenic tell you its a lovely place.

    These are taken in the middle of nowhere about 45min out of Wellington . . .

    Edit - I should add that my rather mundane shots don't really reflect the true wonderfulness of the place :)

    In the Cordillera Huayhuash in Peru. This was day 2 of a 10 day trek, just before altitude sickness kicked in.
