Some of the most beautiful scenery is along West Dallas Creek Road. Along the side of the hill overlooking the Sneffel’s Meadow was a large stand of aspens just starting to peak in color and surround by scrub oak in shades of orange and red. Such a beautiful sight to behold. I used my zoom lens to capture this from a distance and to create some isolation and compression. Hopefully I did the hillside justice.
- Used a 70-200 zoom lens to capture the aspen stand from a distance and to give it some compression and isolation. The 70-200 has become one of my favorite landscape lenses. You don’t always need a wide-angle lens for landscapes.
