Here are shots of Rocky Mountain National Park on the 645 Pro app on my iPhone. There was so much smoke and haze from the hellish fires burning in all directions that the shots are hauntingly aged and eerily out of focus.
I used Camera+ app for some enhancement as well as Lightroom so I could pull some color from the monochromatic day and show the Arctic Tundra a little love.
I took most of these shots between 11,600 to 12,183 feet in elevation.
The tree line here in this part of Colorado is about 11,400 feet. Above this is Arctic Tundra, one of the most phenomenal ecosystems on earth. 10 weeks of summer (much more like Spring for temperatures) where flowers bloom and the land turns an unreal green.
I am eager to see what I got with the DSLR here and I think when I post those shots the brooding skies and awful haze will be more evident. For now I simply wanted to talk about the majesty of Rocky Mountain National Park and suggest for every traveler I know who has not been to take this trek and drive along Train Ridge Road. This is one of America’s most compelling places.
I threw in 1 Camera + photo just to give a sense that ice remains here year round and much more than this in cooler years.
Thanks for staying with me through all these bugs and tweaks. TBA is dialing back into reality slowly but surely
