While I was taking some shots of the Geese at Cherry Creek Reservoir in yesterday’s image, what really caught my eye in the surrounding landscape was the morning mist rising off of the wetland’s water and ice and this patch of wetland grass that had accumulated frost from the snow storm. The intricate frost covered strands stood out from the warm tones of the grass and contrasted against the morning mist.
My first look at the scene I started capturing some images of the whole wide scene and found that the image was just didn’t have any impact. I then concentrated on this small detail, the snow attached to the wetland grass which intrigued me initially on the scene and found that those images had more impact. I’m finding that some of these small details of a scene will tell more of a story than the whole picture. I’m guilty of often trying to capture everything, but then find it’s the small detail images that give impact. What are your thoughts?
