Here is a picture from the west ridge of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison. I’ve featured this tree in another picture of the day – but this is a slightly different composition and framing than the first. This picture was taken very near the end of my father’s patience for waiting for me – so I was a little rushed to get this shot taken. Fortunately, everything lined up and I got what I wanted and was able to get back to the van in time for us to continue our journey. Like the others, this is an HDR shot with three images blended. That was quite a challenge with 40-50mph gusts of wind! I had to time the three shots between gusts to minimize blur.
