Fore Fathers Flowers
Creasted Butte, Colorado
If you’ve never been to Crested Butte, you really must set some time out of your schedule to go there! It’s a small town nestled in the mountains and there is no shortage of shooting locations that can yield some really amazing shots!
I visited Crested Butte on the Forth of July last year, and decided to get into a good location for the fireworks early. While I waited for the sun to set, I noticed some beautiful wildflowers off the side of the road (after all, Creasted butte is the wild flower capital of Colorado).
With my foreground discovered, I still wanted to keep the town in the shot to highlight the natural beauty that surrounds it. In order to get the homes and mountains sharp along with the flower, I needed to take multiple focused images, and then blend them in Photoshop. This yielded an image that is sharp from foreground to background.
