Behind the Photograph | Rockies
Sometimes, the stars align and the light and image just fall in your lap. That is what happened in this photograph. I was driving and there it was –a vista overlooking the beautiful Rocky Mountains at Independence Pass. It was a simple. I set up the composition metered and it rendered a beautiful photograph. Making a great image is not always this simplistic but sometimes it is.
I metered Zone III for the the base of the trees.
