June 2009 RMNP Colorado

This shot was a toughy, cause the sun was beating down straight from above, that is the most aweful light ever to shoot in, but sometimes you just have to take the shot LOL!When I find myself in this situation, I find it works real well to shade the lens completely, thus the trees on the side, and back lighting effect.

Most REAL……( LOL! I think I’m real :O) ..)
photographers will not shoot in this light, and I think try to avoid the sparkles, but me I love to try to capture them as my eyes see it. I love sparkles!!! Sometimes shooting in extream light makes a gorgeous photo for me.
Enjoy!

    Excellent, most would try to get a clear shot of the stream but the lighting on the tree on the right side and the sparkle in the water really makes this a stand out image. Wonderful eye, great work.
