I’m posting five black and white photographs in five days as part of the Five Day Challenge over on Google+, and today is Day Three.
Having spent several weeks’ worth of evenings photographing in Rocky Mountain National Park over the summer, I found myself unexpectedly burned out on big landscapes and grand vistas. So, for awhile now I’ve been turning my attention to smaller, more intimate subjects, such as long exposures of still water of the kind seen in this image. Unlike the national park experience, where I was trying to convey the grandeur of the scenery and often was working quickly to accommodate rapidly changing light and weather conditions, photographing these smaller scenes has been an unhurried, contemplative experience – just right to fit my current mindset.
This image is the first I’ve posted from these efforts, there may be more yet to come down the road. See you tomorrow for Day Four!
