Default The morning out

The other morning I let "work" sit on the shelf and decided to take some much needed time away for a few hours to go to a favorite spot of mine in the Kananaskis area. Loved the walk through the snow...no one around, the air was quiet...perfect.

Again, Kevin- both admirable photos.

The 1st photo presents a truly spectacular landscape.. I'd love to see that in colour.

2nd photo has a very 'cool / steel grey' feel to it... which I believe is perhaps caused by both the overcast sky reflecting 'coolly' on the snow, and the dominant grey of the rock. The bird standing there and the coloured lichen really 'make' the photo imho.

Thanks for sharing.

Paul

Kevin, the first picture is peaceful and calming, but the second one, well, for me, the bird makes the shot! Very nice.

if the bird was not in the second shot it would be very hard to work out the scale of the picture

the first one would be rather plain, except for that brilliant bit of lighting in the foreground... not sure how you caught that, but it really sets off the rest of the photo. i agree about the bird in the second shot...

first one is amazing. Subtle B&W processing suits it perfectly,.gives it real contrast and really brings out the detail. Slight Ansel Adams feel to it. nice job.

Glad people liked the pair. Rocky, the lighting for the most part was spotty and moved around a lot due to the fast moving clouds. A clearing broke in the clouds allowing the sun light to splash across the foreground. It wasn't really a terrific shoot but more just time to get away to re-boot.
