04 Feb 16. As I've written many times, I find the section of MT Hwy-191 that runs through the far western edge of Yellowstone National Park to be among the most beautiful drives in the U.S., at least to the extent that we have traveled them. I've forgotten the name of this small stream that parallels a portion of the road, but the rocks, the trees, and the grasses that surround it make for a truly beautiful location. I've never seen any anglers in this part of the stream/river, but I have seen them on the other side of the road where the bed is wider and the water runs faster. I thought this scene worth of being presented as an oil glaze and so have run a filter on it to give it just such a look. The filter was created by a friend who runs a couple of web sites, one of which called f.64 Academy, is dedicated to Photoshop and photography education. If either is of interest to you, consider paying a visit to the site.
I took the base image and after doing my normal base adjustments ran the oil glaze filter on it to get the look you see. Nikon D300s; 18 - 200; Aperture Priority; ISO 400; 1/125 sec @ f / 7.1
