This is gorgeous! If I may offer one critique, it looks as though the luminance in the clouds was dropped to the point where they look a bit dark. Maybe its just my crappy laptop monitor but the oranges and yellows are saturated to the point where they lack detail. I don't mean to sound negative because this is a gorgeous shot, I just wanted to throw in my two cents...

Those were the conditions I was hoping for. I was in the area for the 4 days before your visit, and as I was headed back to Boulder with some friends, we could see the weather system starting to come in from the west. It was pretty much bluebird days with few clouds the entire time I was there. Made for some good hiking and a drive over Imogene Pass to Telluride. I had all the color, just no snow or crazy atmosphere.

Great job capitalizing on superb conditions.

What a feast for the eyes! I really like that you got a layer of fog there in between the trees and the mountains; it adds a nice dimension to the scene.

Several years ago, we took a drive through Gunnison, down 149, through Slumgullion Pass, to 160 and down Wolf Creek Pass to. . .downtown Pagosa Springs. It was everything I had dreamed it would be. To quote Chef Ramsey, "I was gobsmacked!"

That entire area is a photographers mecca. You captured it well. There is so much that is beautiful there, that it seems almost difficult to come up with a single composition. Of course, you seemed to do a fine job here. Well thought out, well timed and well captured.

Cheers,
Dennis

Gorgeous. I was there a week or so earlier and it did not look anything like this. Great timing.

I really like the mix of colors, the snow and the light.


Thanks Ben, it is all about the timing. The snow sure made all the difference I am glad my timing worked out.

Fantastic! Love the view, the color, and your composition...this is a wallhanger for sure.

I have seen Mt. Sneffels from the Dallas Divide, but never knew how to get down to where you took this shot. Did you go in on Hwy 7 out of Ridgway? If so, will a 2-wheel drive regular vehicle get you to some closer views similar to your image?

Great image!

bob snow


Hey Bob, thanks so much. This is from the Dallas Divide. I shot this though walking right out of the parking area next to the guard rail. I didn't shoot this from where the fence is. I thought that area was too restrictive for the foreground as it keeps you so far back from the edge.

Well, Jim, You did it again. Beautiful. I am imagining a huge print!!. can you show 100% crop of one or two spots, one close and one far? I presume it was taken with D800?
Bob


Hey Bob, thanks so much. No 100% crops coming. It was shot from a D800, it has fantastic detail as you fully know. I can make out every leaf in the shot... But I am not printing out 100% crops, this will be the view I print. Besides, the gear forums are the place for pixel peeping, in here, let's just enjoy the view...

Hey Douglas, thanks so much. And you have a very good eye there. There is a couple small spots in the orange tree's on the right side and the yellows on the left where the colors are a bit hot and blown. But since it's a color area rather than pure white, I have found that when printing one often can't tell. I will do a test print and see how it looks. Thanks for adding your two cents, it's always appreciated.

Thanks Ute! Yeah, I never thought I would be so excited about turning 55, but this means that very very soon I will be ready to start the new year working my photography full time, leading photo workshops, etc... I am so ready to start this 2nd half of my life!
