If the fall is flowing and the sky to the west is clear all the way to the coast, then it should already be lighting up at sunset. The light changes as the month progresses, some prefer the way it looks earlier, some prefer how it looks later. I got this shot on Feb 11 two years ago.

gotta question... its been a very long time since i posted a photo and am having trouble doing it.

i have a site on Photobucket, uploaded my photos, open a photo up, and copy and paste the url.... then i put .


when i do this, it does nothing when i hit preview.. is it suppose to let me see the preview?

also, when it is posted (a couple of days ago it worked) the photo was smaller than what i wanted... it was a big size, but shrunk it down way small.

any help would be appreciated.

btw.... i'm using a Mac (Safari) if that matters.

I don't use photobucket but assuming you're using a good link for the photo, just click on the little icon of a mountain at the top of the box and paste in your photo url and click OK. The size of the photo will depend on the size it is in the link you provide. You may have to go back to photobucket and find out how they size the links you use.

http://support.photobucket.com/hc/en-us/articles/200724324-Linking-and-Embedding-Images On that page you will see the image below. Copy the link in the box called "Direct." Then on this forum, click the Mountain icon, and paste that link into the box.

beautiful photo HotRod!!!! very very nice... and thanks a ton for helping me figure out how to post a photo.

here is one i took (i think back in 2003) with a cheap / crappy camera... i was just glad to be there to get it. i had no idea about this until that day when a climber suggested it to me... i just happened to be there on the right day.
