POTD: Ambiance

Title and Location

Ambiance

Location: Ohio Pass, Colorado
Camera: Phase One P45, Schneider 72L, Cambo Technical Camera
Settings: f/16, 2 seconds, ISO 50
When: October, 2011

I love the experience of aspen groves ablaze in autumn yellow and Ohio Pass near Crested Butte, Colorado is one of the best places to photograph them.  The forest follows down the side of the mountain providing a background full of color.

When photographing the texture of the forest I try to include some kind of compositional element.  In this shot the hiding evergreen adds the compositional element to anchor the viewer’s gaze.
