Trip Report

Mount Des Poilus has been on my radar for quite some time. Originally it was always a ski objective but lately I'd also been looking at it as a possible summer peak.

I love your site and must first give thanks for all the great info, it's been very useful countless times on countless trips. Your pictures are always fantastic but this post especially has such wonderful colour. I'm curious what kind of lens filter you are using. Are you doing any post-prod to bring out the blues?

Thanks Dave! To be honest, this is just using default Olympus JPEG color with the default warm WB that they are famous for, rather than shooting RAW and processing later. I did use a polarizing filter, but I often use those. I agree that the colors are unique here though - I like them too.
