October 2016 Image of the Month: White Trees with Yellow and Red

White Trees with Yellow and Red

White Trees with Yellow and Red, Laurance Rockefeller Preserve, WY, (WY16f1)

On an overcast day with new snow on the ground, I was looking for remnants of fall foliage in the Lawrence Rockefeller Preserve near Jackson Hole, Wyoming.  With the dull light and no strong composition in sight I began to experiment with long exposures and camera movement.  This ethereal image occurred by slightly moving the camera vertically during a one second exposure. 

Nikon D750, 24-120mm lens, 1 sec @ f/22, ISO 100, manual focus, spot metered, Handheld
