Yankee Boy Basin, Colorado

When we jeeped to Yankee Boy Basin, we had a wonderful waterfall (I featured that in a couple of earlier posts), and below the waterfalls, a great little stream with wildflowers lining the bank:

This is a focus-stacked image, combining 3 images of varying focus point in Helicon Focus software. In the foreground are some luscious, rose-colored Indian Paintbrush, which I’ll feature in an upcoming post.

Photographic Equipment Used:

  • Canon 5D Mark 3 body
  • Canon EF28-135mm, f/3.5-5.6 IS lens (IS “Off” while on tripod), shot at 50mm (a circular polarizer was used on front of the lens to slow down shutter speed, to reduce reflections, and to help saturate the foliage)
  • Bogen 3221 tripod with Graff Studioball SB-QR ballhead
  • ISO 100
  • Aperture f/6.3
  • Shutter 1/10 sec.
