Dawn at Glacier National Park (Glacier National Park)

The colors on this one were tough as the sky was just grey as can be from the storm rolling in but yet the mountains were bursting with green since the summer was still in full swing and there had been a bit of rain in the weeks before and during my visit. Additionally, the foreground was littered with colorful stones beneath the surface of the water. Try as I might I was completely unable to get the colors to fit the way the scene truly looked in my head so I took the easy way out and converted it to black and white. I like the way it turned out though as the black and white version just highlights the violent sky and the 8-stop ND filter I used softened the water just enough to give it that feel of motion while the uprooted tree anchored the foreground.

  2. What a striking and gorgeous image — maybe even more so because it’s all about the texture and composition, with no distracting colors. Beautifully done!

    • Thanks so much! I really liked the composition but could never figure out the colors. I pulled up Nik FX though and started playing with it and had a eureka moment of who needs the colors….they were (as you say) taking away from the image in a sense.
