Two takes on a little flower I found Sunday up at Lower Cataract Lake. The Internet assures me this is a fairy trumpet.
Select color first:
A few years back Greg Thow took this majestic shot in Rocky Mountain National Park, and I’m still not sure it isn’t my favorite Greg photo ever. So today, while hiking the Lower Cataract Lake loop up in Summit County I came across Cataract Falls. Didn’t know there was a Cataract Falls. But this scene reminded me of Greg’s RMNP shot. I don’t think I’m anywhere near that one in terms of power and artistic impact, but it’s nice to have pretty spots to practice, huh?
Two takes, color first.
And the black and white. (more…)
Along South Broadway, in Englewood CO.
This has a sort of Hotel California album cover vibe, I think.
Another crop, this with more of that beautifully manicured lawn in the foreground.
Usually I have an idea of how best to crop a shot, but this one I’m not sure about. I think I like the broader crop for its context. Thoughts?
