Tioga Lake

These are the peaks just beyond Tioga Lake. I was at the far end of the lake shooting toward the lakes -- and the more I shot, the more I narrowed my frame so that finally just the two peaks (the one on the right is, I think, Mammoth Peak) were in the image. 

And then I turned the whole colorful scene -- it was a very sunny day -- into black and white. I just think it's a little more interesting this way. Disagree? Well, check out the color, wider version after the jump!

The color photo isn't bad. I just think it's a little too literal. 

Camera, Settings & Processing: Both photos were taken with my Nikon D5100 and Nikon 70-300mm telephoto lens. Both were shot in RAW and processed in Lightroom using VSCO slide film presets

Love the above photos? Buy a print of the black & white image or color image! Prints are priced very modestly and may make a nice gift for the kayaker in your life. Digital licenses are also available.
