Last Days Of A July Evening by kkart Last Days Of A July Evening by kkart
Brainard Lake, Colorado is quite the awesome place. It seems every time I am there it is just an excellent experience and this time was no different. Photographed between passing storms at sunset, I really wanted to get the movement of the clouds so I decided to experiment some and use 2 stacked ND8's along with my CPL to really slow the shutter down a lot. This is the end result.

I really need to get back here again soon. Love it up here!

I think I caught my first trout there (it may have been Long Lake) - Ahhh the memories.
Now my kids have been able to fishing there too. I grew up nearby and my dad still lives in the area.

I will say though...I never saw the sky look like THAT. Experimenting is great.
