Rio Grande River
Taos, New Mexico

by KWeigand

The camera's exposure was set to create dramatic dark cliff walls in the foreground, that still show fine details in the shadows, against the light cliffs that are lit up by the sun. The photographer wanted a strong contrast without loosing the details in the rocks.
The clouds were quickly rolling by, creating light shifts, and soon it would be heavy overcast.  Weigand waited patiently for the shifting light to hit the canyon.  It only lasted less than a minute and was quickly gone.
This image was converted to black and white to focus on the fine details: the glowing river, cliff formations and shapes vs. focusing on color.   Best viewed large.
