There are a few more shots from this day hike on Trail 142. You can learn more about this trail in the earlier posts. Thanks for going along!
You are looking almost directly SW in this photograph. You can almost see California – it is only 600 miles away. 🙂 As you can tell I edited this photo to bring about a compromise of colors, sacrificing clarity; often the case with a ‘painting’ mode. Yet, I did like the result. The attempt was to bring out the distant mountains and their colors while still maintaining brighter lighting on the dead trees in the foreground. As you know this is not something the camera likes to do very well. If focuses on the bright background the foreground goes dark and vice versa. It almost has a ‘dreamy’ look to it…sorta smokey.
I hope you like it!
