Abstract Colors

Autumn Abstract
Clark Fork River
Missoula, Montana


When you visit a location more than once, it can be hard to avoid repeating photographs you've already made. One way to find new subjects is to think of colors, shapes, or light instead of things, like trees or rocks. In this image I used a long lens to isolate the constantly shifting shapes of blue and gold with touches of black in the river's surface. Making many frames allows you to select a favorite arrangement by Mother Nature.
