144. Depth of Field

In Grand Lake, CO,  we hiked to this lake and  also hiked around the whole lake (which went through Arpaho National Forest – which is really beautiful)!    I took this picture at F11, 1/320, ISO 200)  …. I really loved the textures in the water and how it softly flowed back to the mountatins in the clouds.   I thought the distant mountains also really enhanced the depth of field nicely.

  17. Stunning! Your use of the beach in the foreground is just perfect. Now, just how long did it take to hike around that lake – 3 days?

    • LOL,no, we took our time so I could take pictures and the boys could dink in the water, so about 2 hours (4 MI hike).

  18. The variety of textures certainly addd to the “eye interest.”
