The Loch - Rocky Mountain National Park

The Loch - Rocky Mountain National Park

Took a hike up to Loch Vale last Saturday. We were blown around by the wind, stepped into a snow drift up to my hip, hid behind a rock to take cover from snow/ice pelting my face - but all was worth it to view this scene once we got to The Loch!

Hiking The Loch - Rocky Mountain National Park

This is my hiking buddy, Cindy. There is a waterfall under the snow. During the winter months you take the shortcut up the "waterfall" to arrive at The Loch. Steep climb but so worth the views at your destination (coming soon)

The mounded, deep and quiet is the normally boisterous summer water cascade. Winter brings out the other side of nature.

At sunset, August 26, 2002, on the highest road in the U.S.

The light up there was fantastic, and then there were the elk.

Low Battery

Low Battery

This was captured as I was hiking back on the trail after a cold but exciting morning of exploring and shooting. My Sony batteries were pretty much all dead. By chance, I popped one in desperate to get a quick focus stack series of this scene. I fired up the a7RII and low and behold, the battery registered about 25%. I quickly setup my composition, captured a series of images for focus stacking, and this was the final result. I left one hiker in the scene after cloning a few others.
