When I’m photographing in an area I feel a strong connection with, I like to slow down, immerse myself and really explore the options. Usually I’ll post just a couple of favorites from a particular scene but here I’m displaying more… to show how I worked it. The clouds, rock formations, meadow and trees allowed for several variations making it a fun exercise. I walked where I could to consider the possibilities while framing in-camera, and making the most of my pixels. Starting wide I used the pinion pines as foreground elements then gradually zoomed in, while getting a bit closer to the notch. I’m not yet sure if I have a favorite… do you?
(Taking only camera and tripod in hand these were all shot with one lens, a Canon 24-105mm L on a full frame camera.)
