California Pass

While editing images last evening, I found this landscape from “the top of the world”. This image was made from the top of California Pass (elev. 12,960 ft.), in the San Juan Mountains of southwest Colorado. Wildflowers were literally everywhere as we jeeped up and over California Pass. I decided to play with focus-stacking with this shot. I shot 3 images, varying the focusing point of each one. When I returned home, I combined the 3 images into one, using Helicon Focus software. Here is the resulting image:
