Yellowstone Grand Canyon captured by Z 9 / Z24-120f4
If you have the opportunity to be shooting in the Sierra or Rockies during the summer months, keep in mind the weather, especially the freak storm. You can see snow any month at those high altitudes and that opens up lots of photographic possibilities. We had that in Yellowstone recently. The trees in this photo the day before were just your basic pines on a slope. A storm blew through, a wet one which is normal for summer so the snow stuck on the trees. It coated them perfectly outlining every feature on every branch. You might think this is a B&W photo but it’s actually color. It’s this kind of subject detail that the freak storm brings out making it worth chasing. It might be cold, the driving slippery but the end results are well worth the effort!
