Driving through Rocky Mountain National Park felt like we were exploring a different planet. Above the tree line, weaving around snow-capped mountain tops and taking in the beauty of the land and creatures was magical. And I couldn't help but wonder what it will look like 6 months from now; covered in snow and untouched by humankind because the roads will be closed.
Exploring the vast differences within our own country with Scott is so fun. From the deserts of Phoenix, to the red rocks and Sedona, to the beachers of Florida, to the concrete jungle of New York City and now to the alpine tundra of the Colorado Rockies, I can't wait to see what we find next.
A note about my settings and setup (shot in manual mode).
Since I was standing far from the mountains I used my 70-200mm lens. This image was shot at 75mm.
It was super sunny so the ISO was set to 125.
Because I was so far away from the subject (the mountain) it really didn't matter too much what the aperture was set to because most of everything would be in focus no matter what. And same thing with the shutter speed. So to get the exposure correct I set the aperture to f/4 and the shutter speed at 1/3200.
