2005 Olympic Nat'l Park Travelogue

The picture above is the Olympic Range taken at sunset from the Space Needle in Seattle on August 13th.

Here is my narrative describing our trip to/from and walking tour in the Olympic National Park in Washington state. I'll link the corresponding pages from Jonathan's website so that folks can jump back and forth between them.

The background on the webpages for this trip is a shot of a carpet of moss taken in the rain forests. I've taken the liberty of altering the color, but not the pattern, to match the color scheme of this site.

The images on the site, unless otherwise noted, were taken using an Olympus C8080 Zoom, using a high resolution, which results in JPEG's that are 3264x2448 pixels. I usually had a circular polarizing filter installed on all but a few pictures. The image size of the resulting JPEGs are about 3.5 MB each. I burned the unedited version of all images onto a DVD before editing them.

On this site, I've whittled the image size down to two sizes - a thumbnail I use on the page for the day, and a 640x480 pixel (or 480x640 pixel, assuming I haven't cropped or altered the size) image that I've saved optimized for web usage.

A lot of the images I doctored using Photoshop Elements, a trimmed down version of Adobe Photoshop.

If you'd like the high resolution image (1 - 2MB each), drop me an email (MarkTKing mac.com) and I'll either email you a copy or set up a page where you can download the image.
