A Fall Stillness by kkart A Fall Stillness by kkart
Photographed a few days ago. People think Fall is over in Colorado but it really isn't, you just need to know where to look. Photographed at Chatfield State Park, I studied this area for awhile and ultimately what caught my attention was the reflection and how the foothills and their lines were creating a wonderful sense of scale in the water. Add in some Autumn trees and you have the makings for something magical. I photographed this scene using my Tamrom 200-400mm lens which would give me the long reach I needed and create what I call "compression landscapes"; using a long lens to study the scene and to photograph what the human eye would normally miss. I was pretty much over the moon and very excited after taking this image. One of my favorite shots so far this year.

:P I'm about to get hit by Hurricane Sandy, but I'm not too worried. I just want to make sure my family is safe. I may lose electricity for a few days though. :/
