Glorious Greeting

Morning light floods the col at Rabbit Ears Pass, Colorado. The low-angle side light on the rising steam, grasses and Fireweed flowers renders them gloriously.

Nice one, Bob. Love the bit of mist in the stream.

Tank you, David. The rising mist was what attracted me to the scene. I only needed to capture it effectively.

Wonderful Bob. This brings me right there - like I can feel the warmth of the sun hitting my face… taking the bite off the chilly morning before the sun came up… Thanks for sharing this one.

Tank you, Lon. I think photographers, in general, want the viewer to have that sensation. We often don’t take the time to determine what attracted us to the scene and how best to convey it. If we are successful, then the viewer will spend time exploring the image. If not, they will move on in a fraction of a second.
