Looking Back at 2019 part 2.
 
This was one of my favorites of not only 2019, but possibly ever for me. We were at the Kelly Warm Springs in January and there were about 12 Trumpeter Swans taking advantage of the warm water. They had been preening when one looked up just long enough for a couple frames. In post processing I added a little more steam using the Dehaze slider in Lightroom, but moving it to the left, therefore adding haze.

Kelly Warm Springs.
 
Our first day in the Tetons was a chance to ride around a little and see how the conditions were for our upcoming workshop. Things look incredible! Good snow on the ground, roads clear, wildlife present, our folks are going to love it! We had a few things to do in town so our shooting was limited to about 30 minutes before sunset. We decided to shoot the steam rising from the river that flows from the Kelly Warm Springs. I liked the nice curve in the river and the contrast with the snow, so I decided a nice Black and White conversion was perfect. I purposely chose to make it high contrast since the dark water and the snow was like that in reality anyway. I am really looking forward to our time here in Wyoming, this place is truly a paradise.
