Lewis River

I posted a photograph of Lewis Falls last week. This photo of the Lewis River was taken downstream of the falls. I looked to my right as I was crossing the bridge to photograph the falls when I noticed that the sun was lighting up the yellow grass and the green pine trees. The clouds were nice as well so I decided to setup my gear and photograph the wonderful scene even though I was shooting right into the sun.

The Lewis River,named for Meriwether Lewis, commander of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, is an 18-mile-long tributary of the Snake River. The entire course of the river is located within the boundaries of Yellowstone National Park.

This image was taken with my Canon EOS 5DS using my Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II Lens set on 24 mm. The camera was set on Aperture priority mode with the aperture set at f/11, shutter speed at 1/400th of a second and the ISO set at 100. This is a single image processed in Lightroom. I also used Photoshop and Nik Color Efex Pro to finalize the image.
