It was the first evening of my brother's and my trip to Missouri Gulch, and I wanted to have some spots scouted out for potential shots to come. Since less than 50 feet away from camp was a stream of fresh runoff, I decided to explore the area last as I hiked my way down from the slopes. Finding a neat area to setup, I squatted the tripod right above the water and squared everything up.
The sun had set long ago, unfortunately without a cloud in the sky, but still kissed the peak of Mt. Belford. So, fooling around, I decided to work on a focus stack shot.
Redid this shot, so let's talk sharpness and how it is better with it.
I enjoyed how the lovely warm hues of the peak popped against the cool evening, the frigid water and dark night sky, making a wonderfully subtle shot. The smooth flowing stream takes me back to falling asleep, listening as it played its music while I dozed off into my dreams of summiting the nearby 14ers.
What a wonderful substitution for a fan. (something I cannot sleep without)
