Maroon Bells This Morning

Post by minniev » Tue Oct 16, 2018 3:39 am

I went out there in total darkness, in a foot of fresh snow and not quite 10 degrees. It was not the most auspicious set of photos ever taken at the Bells. No clouds for interest, no alpenglow, and the lake was at about half normal capacity due to a couple of years of drought. I missed peak foliage by about a week, but I also missed the joy of having 300 photographers fighting over tripod space. My tripod legs (and my human ones) froze, the zoom on the lens froze and the autofocus began to have problems after about an hour in this stuff. But it was beautiful and fun, and I’ll take any suggestions since I have two more mornings to try!

What you have shown is probably more determination than I with excellent results. Keep warm and safe on your next venture out.

I'm sure you have already done your research, but I'll throw this link in anyway: https://www.colorado.com/articles/explo ... -need-know

multiple exposures for exposure blending since there's contrasting light issues.....

Well now, oh pioneer! My Freudian imagination sees portions of a brightly lit reclining figure, head on the right (almost skeletal) looking up and breasts on the left. Make what you want of it. Can't help what floods this head of mine. For a guy, warm thoughts on a frosty morning.

Hope the next two days reward you for your efforts.. Matt
