The Road to The Chisos

Hello there! It’s been a long time since I have posted a photo. My apologies for not posting more frequently. My executive coaching practice has kept me quite busy and photography has taken a back seat.  Until this week, that is. I’m now in Big Bend NP for my annual fall trip with some of my photography friends. The conditions so far have not been ideal for photography but a cold front today changed things for the better.

This photograph was taken literally on the road to the Chisos Basin. This road leads to one of the most scenic areas of the park and it is home to the Chisos Mountains Lodge, the Chisos Basin Campground and to some of the best trails in the area. The drive to the Basin is also one of the most beautiful drives in the park. The change in elevation is accompanied by changes in vegetation from high-desert cacti to pine forests. I highly recommend visiting the park and especially visiting the Chisos Basin

This image was taken with my Canon EOS 5D Mark IV using my IRIX 15mm f/2.4 Blackstone Len.  The camera was set on Manual mode with the aperture set at f/8, shutter speed at 1/2,500th of a second and the ISO set at 100. I hand-held the camera so I could move quickly in the event of a vehicle. This is a single image processed using Lightroom and completed in Photoshop using Nik Color Efex Pro.
