Hidden Bells by Nate-Zeman Hidden Bells by Nate-Zeman
The Maroon Bells are one of the most photographed spots in all of North America, and especially this time of year when the aspens are at peak color. i got to the shore of maroon lake pre-sunrise with about 40 other photographers, and i didnt have very high hopes. Mostly because i could only see about 20 ft in from of me. The rain and fog had settled in really thick. but the thing about that type of weather is that theres a possiblity of getting a really good show of light if the fog lifts as the sun comes up. which is exactly what happened this day. for only about 5 minutes the fog lifted to reveal the mountains, and I was able to get off a bunch of photos before the next batch of fog rolled in and hid them again.

I don't know if you've ever heard the phrase.. F11 and be there! Its
an old news paper term, from when they used speed graphics 4x5 film cameras, and
huge flash bulbs. Set the camera on F11 and blast away. Well the
same applies to nature fine art photography.. You have to be there
if you want the shot. And F11 works .. Just thought it fit your latest
shots. Up before the sun, drive, hike what ever it takes but
"BE THERE" Great shots.
