Just wanted to announce that I have added two more desktop backgrounds to my Wallpapers page! It’s fun to go through pictures and find pictures like these that really focus in on the detail. They make perfect wallpapers.
Colors of Winter
This first shot was taken at Coopers Rock State Forest in Bruceton Mills, West Virginia (exact location). It was one of the only times I had ever done serious hiking in winter, especially with snow on the ground. My brother Jonathan and I hiked several miles out to the Coopers Rock overlooked and shot the sunset over the Cheat River valley. These leaves caught my eye along the trail on our way in.
Wherever there’s color, zoom in on it! There weren’t many clouds in the sky to reflect the colorful light of sunset over Two Medicine Lake in Glacier National Park, Montana (exact location), but there were pockets of clouds that surround the peaks of several mountains surrounding the lake. With a 200mm lens, those clouds were all that were needed for capturing something colorful!
