Beautiful Image: Contrast

On this last calendar day of autumn, here’s a great photo of aspens in Colorado.

San Juan Mountains of Colorado

Link: Earth Shots » Contrast by Tad Bowman.

Photographer Tad Bowman says:

This photograph was taken in the San Juans of Colorado. I was drawn to the lines of this scence (aspen boles and the rocks in the ridge) as well as the brilliant fall color of the aspens. I took about 70 shots of this scene over an hour and a half timespan to try to capture the light the way I wanted on the aspen strand and the light being muted on the ridge in the background.

Equipment: Canon EOS 1dsMII, 70-200 mm lens, tripod
