Cottonwood Detail

Cottonwood Detail

I recently watched a Ben Long video in Linkedin Learning that going back to old images and looking for the pictures within pictures. (I highly recommend Ben’s video’s in general and “The Practicing Photographer” series of weekly posts in particular.)

I found this detail of cottonwood trees along the Elwha River in Olympic National Park that I took over a year ago. I like it better without the clutter in the foreground and the distant ridge line. The background of a tree covered hillside is nice, the rest was just distraction.

  • Camera: Nikon D850
  • Lens: Nikkor 24-85mm set at 85mm
  • ISO 400 1/125 sec f/6.3
