The Last Kiss Before Night by Jacob-Routzahn The Last Kiss Before Night by Jacob-Routzahn
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)

Thanks buddy! I don't take a lot of night shots since my camera took a dive almost two years ago and ruined the cable release port. So it was fun getting to push the limits of this old timer. In the near future I'm hoping to get the updated version of the 5dmkII when it comes out. Hoping, that is, as long as it isn't outside my price range. I'm really glad you like the shot though :D

yeah 5dmk3 is sure to be a beast whenever it arrives! looking forward to it myself too so the price of the 5d2 hopefully comes down a bit too... reckon that's all the camera I need :D

I have one of the first canon dslrs that was available, due to the cost at the time when I bought it. I feel as though I have pushed it to its limits and now am ready for one of the newest, full frame, dslrs available. As long as the funds allow me to :)
