Icy Reflection Wide View

Uploaded: September 25, 2005


Fountain Creek Valley Park north of Fountain, CO (wider view). I enjoyed the the S-shaped opening in the ice cover, and the reflections of the frosted trees. Tripod-mounted Mamiya 7, 80mm lens, 1/4 second, f/22. Velvia 100F. Cropped and adjusted levels and saturation in Photoshop.
