A mountain.

By HobbitDave
Was inspired by seeing the beautiful mono sunrise here on EPZ by pdunster_greymoon yesterday. I think this is one of the peaks in his image. Ive enabled mods as I took this exactly 50 years ago on a stay in British Columbia. Taken near Highway 97, Vancouver to Vernon.
Photo was taken with a faithful old Agfa Silette film camera. Its a very old 35mm colour transparency. I use an iPad these days so dont have any way of tidying up the image.
The tiny black specks were birds above the forest, possibly Eagles. Photo taken early morning.

Just to confirm, I took the photo in 1971, on Agfa colour slide 35mm film.

P.S Apologies for the caption, but no idea what the pointed mountain is called, a relative thought it was Mt Cheyenne but that doesnt come up on GoogleEarth.

Blimey, Dave, makes my recently scanned 25+ year old image uploads seem quite recent! 😃 A super view, and go for the lead as my fave 👍

Wonderful all along Lake Okanagon and beyond, Christina, very beautiful but without that ‘ancient’ feel you get in Scotland though in the Hebrides.

Love the mod, Ian, it has wiped out all the tiny birds 🦅 but makes it clearer overall. Nice one!

Thanks for the tip. Will have a look. I use ‘photo editor’ a lot but it doesn’t go as far as cloning and backgrounds.

Truly lovely image and although I like the B/W, the tones in the colour version are lovely Dave.

50 years ago, you must have been a great photographer aged 10! ☺️ Not a day over 60!

Take care Dave,
