Where I live, there’s access to many wonderful hiking trails, Little Mountain Park is one such place. As the name implies, the park is actually all of Little Mountain (as far as I can tell anyway) and at the top of the mountain, there’s a few lookout points. This is the north facing lookout point and thankfully, you can actually drive to the top (I would have so disliked hauling all my gear…). 😀
Happy Friday all.

Looking at this photo again, I like it even more. While the subject is the lookout, surely the story is the view – that is what the lookout is for, that is why you are there, and there it is, in the background and all around (one senses).
Awesome. And I’m with Lionel about including the look out. The land/sky beyond is wonderfully soft.
Thank you Brandon, perhaps another visit is in order real soon…
David, I dig the fact that you shot the lookout as opposed to the actual view, which would have been the obvious choice, but then that lookout is pretty nice. I agree with you about the gear. As much as I love hiking, Dragging your gear up the mountain for a few hours for a twenty minute shoot at the top can make a person re-evaluate their sanity.
Thank you Lionel, I figured why take the actual vista as I am certain many many folks have done so in the past. I will eventually post an actual shot from the lookout but for now, I like this! The long haul with all the gear can certainly be draining, however, I suppose it acts as a great workout tool eh? 😀
i love this kind of photo, it is splendid in its simplicity
Thank you Fabrizio.
Amazing shot and an equally amazing view……lovely!!
Se ve un sitio espectacular, la toma hace que parezca que verdaderamente estés ahí arriba, saludos
As always, thank you very much for your comment, it’s greatly appreciated! 😀
I just wanna keep looking. 🙂
Great shot, David. Loved it.
Really glad you like it Nandini! 😀
That’s beautiful David! (So glad there’s an end on the walkway!) It’s a gorgeous view! Nice nice photo!
Thank you Judy, I really need to head up there for a sunset/sunrise one of these days. 😀
That would be an awesome shot from that vantage point!
Finally getting some time to catch up on blogs — doing a bit of a whistle-stop tour though, but nevertheless appreciating as I go! A quick glance and I can see you’ve taken some lovely images over the past couple of months and am off to look through them now 🙂
Glad to see you back Mufidah, I’ve missed your posts!
Nice! I really like the shallow DOF in this image.
Thank you very much Mike, glad you like it!
What a beautiful idea… Should be amazing to be there and to watch… You did a great shot dear David, Thank you. Have a nice weekend, with my love, nia
It is a wonderful view that’s for sure! Wish I could have taken more photographs that day but it was rather windy and I had very little time. Thank you for the comment Nia.
