Even the best laid plans don't always
work out. I traveled to Rocky Mountain National Park earlier this
month with the idea of getting some abstract pictures of the ice formations that form on the alpine lakes there. After arriving I found that even
though it had been several days since the last storm a layer of snow
still covered the lakes. Not much ice was visible. To make
matters worse, high winds were raging along the Continental Divide
and made setting up a tripod to steady a camera nearly impossible.
Time for Plan B. I drove to one of the overlooks above Beaver
Meadows where conditions were calmer and I could take advantage of
the sweeping view of the mountains. From there I watched the wind
create ever-changing patterns of blowing snow that resembled
billowing clouds. This was one of the photos I took. Converting the
image to black and
white later in Photoshop helped emphasize the curves of the blowing
snow clouds circling the summit of Longs Peak. This photo
exists only because I refused to give up on the visit to the park even though the
conditions I had hoped for didn't materialize.
