Fall photo fun
FRISCO — I got my feet wet several times this weekend taking pictures of the incipient ice along our local streams, but it was well worth it. Actually, more than my feet — for some a few of these shots, I contorted myself over boulders, at times laying prone in slushy snow along the banks of the creeks, to try and get a good angle, and to keep my camera and tripod level and steady. Generally, these riverside spots aren’t exactly level and there’s not always a good spot to set up a tripod, so I’ve learned to improvise, using rocks as a camera platform. Sometimes I put down my hat as a pad, and just use my hands to clamp the camera tight against the rock for quarter-second exposures. Whatever works, right? Please visit the online Summit Voice gallery at Fine Art America for a great selection of Summit County landscape shots.
