This high dynamic range image is a final outlook over the valley that leads north and east into McLure, British Columbia. Depth within the image is created overlapping elements within the composition, the mountain forming the background is overlapped by the central mountain, then the mountain on the left (middle ground) and finally the mountain on the right (closest – foreground). The train track leads the eye into the photo and you explore your way from foreground to background. Colouration versus black and white in the images also helps accentuate depth.

Listening to – U2’s ‘Vertigo’ and ‘Miracle Drug’.

Quote to Inspire – “I have to shoot three cassettes of film a day, even when not ‘photographing’, in order to keep the eye in practice.” – Josef Koudelka

    No’s 1 and 6. Almost etched detail. And a wonderful viewpoint. Great work on this set.

    1. Hey there, Jim:

      This image is one that follows another photo you liked back in March – it’s the same trip/drive north and east towards Kamloops, BC. With the other image your preference for ‘realism’ within the photo was there, as well. 😉
