The dog and I had planned on camping out for the evening, but with it being Memorial Day weekend, all the spots had filled up in the Taylor Fork Area of the Custer Gallatin National Forest. Since we were already out, we decided to explore a little more of the forest laden roads. Taylor Fork Road turned into Forest Service Road 1347, and we eventually would wind up being pretty close to the base of the Taylor Peaks by the time we had reached a closed gate. The Taylor creek rushed by, as Koch Peak stood tall in the distance at an elevation of 11,293'. The surrounding field we found ourselves in, was sporadically filled with yellow Glacier Lillies. My thought process of taking this photo, was to capture the strength of the mountain rising up from the delicate nature of the flower. What a metaphor for life, eh? The original photo was dull, flat, and underexposed (I normally shoot darker anyways.) As I was making my edits, I decided to give the final product an artsier feel to it, because I wasn't liking how any of them were coming out. Below I take you through the transition of 4 fine art landscape photography captures. My original shot to the final product. Enjoy!
