More Cloudy Mountains

Well, for lack of getting any other shots for the blog lately, I thought it might be time to put up another one of my black and white mountain shots from Whistler, Canada. I think from all of the ones I've taken, this is probably my favorite. I just really like how it turned out. With the clouds in the valley and the clouds in the background, it just really makes a cool shot.

I also decided to use Scott Kelby's blog post on how to make a poster with your name and stuff on it and applied it to this shot. It's pretty easy and kinda cool. However, if you go to his blog and watch the video, the HD is turned off so it's kind of hard to see him do everything. But, you can hear him talk about it and you can get the idea for the most part. Here's how mine turned out below:

I think if you click on it you can see a larger size to get a better idea of how it turned out.  Check out Scott's post and give it a try.  I really like the look of it.

Hope you like it and thanks for visiting.


  1. I like the shot a lot and when I scrolled down to the poster I like that even better -- awesome. IMO that's an extremely saleable print (assuming it's that good in a large size of course). I have a couple of the Kelby books and I've been wanting to try this for a long time. You've inspired me...but I'll probably never find the time :-)

  2. Your Whistler shots are fabulous and I especially like your monochromes. The framing is very effective here - I'll have to give that a try.

    PS: I wish you would allow people to comment without having to use some kind of external credentials. I can never remember how to use the OpenID thing!

  3. Mike, it really didn't take that long to do. You will probably spend more time processing a shot than doing this poster.

    Dave, thanks and I changed it so anyone can leave a comment without having to use open ID. Thanks for that bit of input.

  4. Darn fine work Evan, great shot! Jim

  5. I've been enjoying all of your Whistler images, Evan. Thanks for the link to Scott's poster tutorial. I love it when photographers share their knowledge.


  6. Thanks Jim and you're welcome Wayne!
