I came across this vast field in the middle of Colorado, heading north towards Saguache, CO. That whole area is beautiful plains surrounded by this mountain range on one side. I saw how interesting the clouds were and decided that I needed to take a photo. The cows and tree made the image that much better, I think.
I read somewhere lately how “contemporary” photographers often create black and whites but warm them with filters or lightroom highlight and shadow colors. I’m definitely noticing that I often want to do that. I’m not sure if it’s because the photos are often “old-westy” and I want to add a sepia look, or what. But I love this type of image. It also looks great with people portraits (case in point, yesterdays child portrait). The warmth really shows through the image.
Anyone else out there find this to be true with their photos?
