No matter how hard you try some times that magical light never appears. When you're on vacation and the weather is blah what do you do about pics? I still go out and shoot unless it's just pouring down rain then I come home to see what I have. The weather isn't always going to cooperate with you all the time especially when you only have so much time to get it. Some of these places that hubby and I go to so that I can shoot isn't always easy to get to and takes time to get there on 4 wheel drive roads. We are not into traveling them in the dark hrs.
It was a nasty day off and on when we drove down this county rd 7 near Ridgeway, Colorado. It was our last day in the area we were moving on to Arizona the next day. I wanted the shot of the Sneffles Range and with the light I had; it was just blah. I took it anyways because I loved the stormy clouds above them, but you can tell by the pic below it was just a flat blah day. This photo is straight out of the camera.
I've kept this shot hoping I could work a little hokey pokey Photoshop magic on it (yes I'm one of those photographers) to bring it to live. Well I think I have finally got it the way I want it. I think it's going to look real nice printed up on canvas on my wall!
