Last Saturday as I loaded my bike in the car for a day trip to the Stevens Pass Bike Park, I decided to run back inside and pack an overnight pack just in case I got inspired to spend the night outside. As the fog broke on our day of biking, I was duly inspired and decided to drive across Blewett Pass and spend the night at Ingalls Pass, a quick but potent backpacking option.

I camped on a rock ledge at Ingalls Pass, waking in the middle of the night to shoot some full moon shots. I woke again at 4:30 to make my way to the shores of Ingalls Lake where I shot long exposures in the pre dawn hours. The rest of the day was spent relaxing by the lake and in a leisurely hike back to the car. Only 24 hours of wilderness time, but immensely refreshing nonetheless. The conditions could not have been better for backpacking; and on that note, I’m off to pack my gear for another outing, this time in the North Cascades. Happy weekend!

As with all of my work, prints are available. Email for more information.

  1. Nice images. Your review of this little camera has really put my purchase of the forthcoming Fuji x-e1 on hold! The Fujis not weather sealed (I work in the mountains on ski and bike) nor is there a nice wide for it yet. I really didn’t think I’d ever be interested in anything with a sensor smaller than APS-C, but the IQ of the Oly looks fine.
    Decisions, decisions…..

  2. Nice images, now really interested in the OMD, I had almost definitely decided on the Fuji x-e1 as my next ‘carry-able’ camera, but as I’m in the same sort of environments as you (Scotland’s Cairngorm mountains) I’m now debating whether the OMD with a nice wide might be a better option. No wides or weather sealing on the Fuji’s Decisions, decisions.

  3. Awesome photos, Scott! Just stunning. Really digging the long exposures.

    Quick question: which camera did you use to grab the long exposures? Were you able to pull these images out of the OM-D E5?
