Rocky Mountain National Park

I made it back to the alluvial fan in Rocky Mountain National Park a few weeks ago. The fact that the National Park Service had declared it a free weekend to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the park service made it much more popular than when I was there last.

I had to wait until it started raining before everyone cleared out of the scene.

Here I was studying how a long lens compresses the scene. Here I was using my 70-200 at 200 mm. Years ago I had used my 24-70 and the fan looks more dynamic here. I also kept in mind something that Efrain Cruz mentioned to me, that you don’t want the water to go completely white, you want a variety there.
