October 30, 2012 – Ophir Pass

Ophir Pass

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

Okay, enough of a break, back to the bright yellows from my Colorado trip. This is another one from the approach to Ophir Pass, a bit south of Telluride. And, this is another shot that would have been better had my equipment not been giving me problems. Specifically, this is yet another victim of the corner/edge softness in my Tamron 17-50. (If you’ll remember – I ended up sending it in for warranty repair after this trip. They apparently did indeed find some things wrong with it, so I’m currently waiting for it to get back here in the mail.) You can see what I’m talking about along the top ridgeline. And, I also had to crop the image some (pained me quite a bit to do that – as I felt that the original composition was better) because the stuff that used to be along the right edge and in the top right corner were just too distracting in their blurriness. Sigh. Oh well.

Notes: Canon EOS Rebel T1i, Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 lens. 1/250s, f/6.3, ISO 200. Focal length: 43mm.

    I like the deep blue and yellow in this photograph. Colorado is a beautiful state.
