    Default The Marvelous Silence

    I remember the marvelous silence of this location. There was a wide canyon in front of me and and no wind to rustle the trees beside me. I was all alone except for the view, a part of which Iíve saved for you here.

    Hi Bob -

    I can sense the silence here. Really like the sharpness and color on your photos. (I guess the cats were being quiet??)
    Best Regards, Jim

    Thanks. The color is just as natural as I can get it. The cats are largely quiet, except for whichever one is getting some lap time and is purring.
    Good shooting,

    I love that silence, something that's getting harder and harder to experience. Imagine what it must have been like before there were any of our man-made artificial noises? There are places around here that can be like that, but the last few times I was in one of those quiet spots, it was vaguely disquieting for a while. Hard to get accustomed to real silence, there is so much noise in our lives. Even in these remote quiet spots, its hard to avoid airplane noise for very long.

    With your description of silence, the sharpness of the foreground rocks, along with the clouds, blue sky, and snow, one word comes to mind: CRISP!

    There are plenty of places in the west that don't even have planes flying over them. There's always the wind nearby, though, and the wind rustling through a forest is anything but quiet, though the noise is kind of friendly.

    Thank you. That's part of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone in northwestern Wyoming. The canyon is 24 miles long, 800-1200 feet deep and 1500-4000 feet wide.

    The snow often brings a quiet time. I don't imagine you get to see very much of it unless you travel especially to do so.

    Beautiful image Bob, I love the colour in those rocks. When I was younger I spent quite a lot of time in the Scottish mountains on cold crisp days, and this image certainly captures the colours you get in that kind of harsh light.

    Thank you. Without those rocks, there wouldn't have been a very good photo opportunity there. Large numbers of trees becomes visually boring almost instantly. I have a lot of trouble with that when shooting mountains in the summer. You might think of visiting the high country again. Age isn't a hindrance, I manage to get out and live on the ground for long periods of time and I'm no youngster.

    Wow, great!
    Could you tell a bit how you post-process your photos?
