Fresh Mountain Air

I love being in the Rockies! The air is so nice, crisp and fresh! This shot was late in the afternoon taken from a relatives place. WHAT A VIEW! This is a 3 image stitch from memory… didnt wanna use the pano head for this shot… 1. because i couldnt be bothered changing the head.. 2. but mostly because I didnt want any camera shake with a little breeze around and zoomed in a fair bit. Dont worry only stitching a few images with the mark2, I do it very often if I dont wanna stitch 7 or 8 images with the pano head. The detail is still awesome and results are super sharp! 🙂

The Water in the shot is part of Dillon Reservoir which supplies Denver with drinking water.

This was the first day we spent in the mountains this year so I was shooting like wild. Sometimes with other people around I dont like to spend a lot of time shooting one location cause they may get quite bored while I might completely forget about time.

Will be back in the mountains very soon no doubt and cant wait to be up there.

    Cool mate, I like it. Could maybe try back off the blue a little bit, looks like a bit of a cast..looks good in th sky and water, but id loose it in foreground and the snow covered peak..maybe try and really pop the whites on that snow covered peak, and a slight brighten over the central elements of the photo.
    Looks like an awesome place mate, glad you are having a great time!

    • Cheers Matt!
      It actually had this colour cast there were no filters or anything used here. But yeah i did back off the blue a bit but didnt wanna go so far as to kinda make it look fakeish or different to how it originated.. Ill see what people reckon cause it was on my mind! 🙂
      Mind you on my screen which is using a CFL profile only really has the colour cast on the distant mountain….. :S
      cheers mate
