The Solitary Winter by kkart The Solitary Winter by kkart
The Solitary Winter

Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado

One of the things I love to do is study the landscape and compositions using my Tamron 200-400mm getting in close to things that otherwise one would miss with a standard landscape lens. I am often amazed at the things which I see and the things which I find. As was the case with this shot here.

This is a rework of the color version below, using one of my custom made Lightroom 3 split tone presets which I am thinking about making available at some point, with final touch up in Photoshop cs5. I really wanted a sense of emotion, mood, and feeling, of how harsh the winters can be up here.



I hope you all like it!
John

Looking at the color thumbnail I feel I like the black and white much better. The black and white causes me to focus on the texture instead of the color. It seems far colder, which is how I see winter. Cold, desolate, and not so full of life. I like this.
