Etherial Sangre de Cristo Mountains


On the morning of June 16, 2014 I looked out my studio window and saw smoke from what turned out to be a wildfire in Arizona.  Smoke (its destructive source aside), like fog and haze, can create beautiful aerial perspective, the name for such layering effect.  The initial RAW capture was, pale, gray, low contrast and dreary.  But it provided the raw material for creating this Japanese scroll art feeling.  A few simple adjustments in Lightroom were made and—voila!
