wasn’t enough to keep me away from this jagged peak..
“To the complaint, ‘There are no people in these photographs,’ I respond, There are always two people: the photographer and the viewer.”
There’s something about the mountains that puts things into perspective and I don’t think that I will ever grow tired of looking at them.
There is such magic in capturing a moment that is only fleetingly visible.
This was one of those times on a recent trip to the Rocky Mountains in Canada. Rain, clouds, and fog can be a little more challenging to work around but they also provide opportunities like this one where a crack in the clouds revealed this peak still frosted with winter snow.
I like to find the unusual in a landscape. That might take a change of lens, direction, perspective, settings or all of the above.
If you’re not afraid of getting wet the rain seems to add a vibrancy to foliage and a simple trash bag with your lens poked through a hole in the bottom can keep your gear dry if it isn’t weather sealed.
Great photo opportunities can happen anytime under any conditions so don’t let a little weather or less than perfect light keep your camera in its bag…
