This next image from Patagonia, made this winter (June), depicts a remote lakeshore and a tiny wind-shaped tree I fell in love with. I was attracted to how the light of sunset came through the enormous peaks in the distance and illuminated its rocky perch, creating a warm/cool contrast with the snowy peaks. In order to make the perspective I wanted and pull the peaks together into the scene I used a stitch of 2 14mm images, both exposed for the highlights. Using a D800E I was able to easily control all of the lighting here otherwise without exposure blending. My favorite moment was obviously here, when the sun’s reflection created an additional little sparkle on the water.
