Winter Reflection 2

Uploaded: October 19, 2005


Crisp winter morning at Fountain Creek Valley Park, Fountain, CO. This view was already uploaded as a black and white photo. It was taken the same day as "Frosty Reflection" also in my gallery. Tripod-mounted Mamiya 7 with 80mm lens, Velvia 100F. Scanned into Photoshop with an Epson 4870. Cropped for the panoramic view.

Amazing! I've passed that pond hundreds of times. I never thought it could look so pretty. It's interesting how we tend to overlook what we see day in and day out. #3233439
