I’ve shot this view many times, including during foliage season, but I think this is probably the nicest light I have captured there yet. Maybe the brilliant fall color would have distracted.
I went here thinking of making a black and white image, which I did of another composition, but once this light presented itself, well…there wasn’t much resistance on my part. It was just a question of lining up the rocks with as little overlap as possible and twisting the polarizer so the reflection shined even better than my eyes could see it.
I exposed for the brightest rock but in retrospect wish I had used the right hand sky instead.
