String Lake

The String Lake trail follows the String Lake shoreline. I hiked this trail during my recent trip to the Grand Teton National Park. As I hiked the trail around the lake I was looking for an opportunity to photograph the lake and the mountains but I wanted a decent foreground. That’s when I found this interesting rock and decided that it would make a good foreground. I setup my tripod very low to the ground and focused on the rock. I made sure that my aperture was set to capture both the rock and the mountains. String Lake is a very good place to visit if you are in the area. It is one of the few places in the park where many activities such as canoeing are allowed.

Yellowstone RiverThis image was taken with my Canon EOS 5DS using my Canon EF 16-35mm f/4 Lens set on 16mm. The camera was set on Aperture Priority mode with the aperture set at f/16, shutter speed at 1/30th of a second and the ISO set at 100. I used a tripod for stability. This is a single image processed in Lightroom and finalized the image in Photoshop using Nik Color Efex Pro.
