Silver Streak, Grand Tetons National Park, WY
There must have been about a dozen photographer behind me shooting the reflections of the Grand Tetons behind me that morning, but I was drawn to the backlit mist just as the sun was coming up. The cloudless sky over the Tetons was rather uninteresting.
How was this photograph created?
As my skills were rather limited at the time, I went to great lengths to avoid the bright sky on my right. The photos is intentionally left dark to make the mist stand out. This was also one of my first attempt at manual blending...I spend hours trying to figure out how bring out the details in different parts of the image (back in 2005 HDR was not quite as popular).
At the time I was not convinced going through blending multiple images was was worth the effort. :-)))
Enjoy & Share.
