"There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs." Ansel Adams


Heres a shot from Mount Sneffles in the Rockie Mountains. This was where we camped for a couple of the nights and as soon as i saw the scene i knew i had to photograph it. Turned out I just had to wait 2 days for the light but my god did that light come! I was in awe as i watched this scene unfold before me and was so glad i persisted in waiting for this shot! I remember telling my cousins that if we get decent sunset it will light that mountain up in a bright red or orange leanving a darker foreground which was exactly what i wanted…. Was so stoked when I saw the exact scene I hoped for unfolding! Hope ya’ll like it. 🙂 (note: the whole image when uploaded to the net seems to be a tad darker than the actual file….)

  1. Heh, that is cool mate, must have been stoked when things happened exactly like you wished and predicted.

    Mountains are beautiful and so are the clouds. I gotta say I am not quite as keen on the foreground, it’s messy and doesn’t shine at all like the mountain and clouds.

  2. It is great when things fall into place
    however we certainly differ on our preferences cause i love the foreground.. The pebbles in the stream were so appealing to me… cheers for the response anyway mate!

  3. that’s so great about art and photography anyway, difference of opinions. I prefer super simplistic images, usually don’t like foreground much. Also foreground brings me back to earth, shows me where the photographer is standing etc, where as I prefer to fly free in the image.

  4. Your right mate! If we didnt like different things all our pics would be far to similar!
