I just got back from a two week trip to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. This image was taken early one morning at sunrise and steam rose off the river. Basic editing in the iPhone editing app. Pam

Great shot of an iconic area. This would look great hanging on your wall! The lighting at that time of day is interesting with the foreground in shadow and the far ridges sunlit. The leading lines in the image work very well. Nice!   Posted: 11/06/2023 08:45:16

The Madison is one of those legendary rivers that fly-fishers often dream about. This lovely capture shows the beauty of the area. I like that you got reasonably low so the water streams right out of the bottom of the image and leads my eyes into the frame, and on to the vanishing point in the distance. Nicely seen and captured.

This photo immediately grabbed my attention. This early morning lighting created a wonderful photo. The photo has great depth. It starts with the river, then pines, mountains, then more mountains in the background. This gives me the feeling of a live scene. A great photo Pam. With your trip to 2 great national parks, I expect to have more photos soon, please!!!! This is a wall Hanger Pam.   Posted: 11/08/2023 15:29:50

Pam, you continue to amaze me with your unique west coast images which brings a warm feeling to what you see on your adventures. I love the composition of the clouds forming in what is like a wedge between the mountains. Your choosing to shoot from a low position really helps the framing of the water. Super image.

Feel like in a canoe having just rowed into this scene. It's interesting that you got this water angle from standing on shore unless in canoe. Composition makes very welcoming image.   Posted: 11/11/2023 09:00:21

So easy to look at. The warm light makes the difference. I find the phone often tries to "correct" what it thinks is the wrong color. So, in this case did you need to add some warmth to make it right again?   Posted: 11/12/2023 12:23:10

I don't recall adding any warmth. I usually use the phone editing app and just hit auto.   Posted: 11/12/2023 14:07:19
