    I thought I’d experiment with monochrome and try to salvage a rainy day in the park…

    It’s a nice shot Bruce, Are these the peaks above dream lake, I used to hike up there a lot in my youth.

      Thanks Robert! It’s actually from the Bear Lake parking lot in RMNP. Looking southwest toward Emerald lake. I think that’s Hallett Peak on the left and Tyndall Galcier at the top of the valley… Bear lake is just behind the closest trees.

        Yes, Tyndall Glacier feeds Dream Lake, its behind the third  hill a beautiful hike you should try some day.
        Not my photo click to view file at its location.

          Right Robert! I had intended to at least get up to Emerald Lake, but there were thunderstorms, so I chickened out. The only upside, besides the great clouds, was the weather keep most tourists away and there was ample room in the parking lot. lol I am going back on my next days off. I will include Dream lake, as well!

          I finally got a moose photo over in the Kawuneeche Valley… First one ever. It seems as though moose flee my presence. The Elk were in rut in Moraine Park, so I got a few decent shots there. I need a longer lens! I’ll post in general chit chat.

    I really like this one Bruce.  I think the rain helped here to make a nice b&w landscape.  Very nice.

      Thanks John! I have grown fond of shooting in bad weather, as I love the drama clouds and mist can add to a scene.

    I like this one too. The rain adds a really interesting effect. I like the b&w, but I also wonder what it might look like in color as well. Perhaps, some interesting color shifts??

        Ahhhhhh… Now that I see the original, I can see why you went b&w- not much color to begin with.

          Right Kent; it was a pretty dreary scene, but I was drawn to the rising mist, and took it thinking it would translate well to monochrome…

    I really like this Bruce, the rain adds to it, gives it a sort of texture.

      Thanks Tersha! I do wish the rain hadn’t been so cold!
