Kawuneeche Valley, Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado

A sweeping landscape taken over a frozen river shows the rocky Mountains in all their glory. I decided to to this shot in B&W as I wanted to portray a more traditional landscape, something which I feel is starting to disappear sadly in today’s photography.

I hope you all enjoy it.

    Icy and beautiful – the contrast levels are wonderful, and the circular flow from the snow-covered ground to the clouds leads your eye right through the image. Great work!
