Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado
I really tried to frame this shot as best as I can in camera using my Minolta 28mm f2.8 lens. It has been awhile since I put this lens through it's paces, and I have forgotten just how sharp it is...needless to say it is now of the most used lenses as of late for landscapes. I really wanted to try and capture the atmosphere here, presenting the scene as realistic as possible with the subtle light and the textures that are found during winter within RMNP. Trying to make the composition work was challenging at times to really get the river to work within the image.
I hope you all like it!
