The Lens Artists Challenge is hosted this week by Patti.

She says: “By getting down low, looking up, or taking a variety of shots as I walk around the subject, I’m able to find the best perspective.”

I trust I can find some good examples from my snow-hiking Friday, 2/28/2020, near Frisco, Colorado. As you will see, it was a beautiful, blue-sky, drop-dead gorgeous day.

LOOKING UP I saw pale white Aspen trees against blue sky.

The sky was blue, blue, blue.

At an overlook we could LOOK ACROSS Lake Dillon to the east southeast:

If we LOOK CLOSER, at 360mm zoom, handheld, we can see Grays and Torrey’s Peak:

We might think a branch of dead pine needles by the trail is not especially pretty:

However, if we LOOK CLOSELY we see that Nature is beautiful even in death and decay. (Open this next one separately and zoom. It’s a beaut.)


BARK!  (woof. woof.)



Kudos to the tireless leaders of the weekly Lens-Artists challenge.

  1. you’ve focused on one of my favorite trees John – maybe because we don’t have them here but I love them when I visit my brother in Colorado. A magical part of nature shown beautifully in your images. Also loved the close up of the pine needles.

  2. Oh, the blue and white – Aspens and deep blue sky – wonderful. I can feel the fresh air and breathe it in – Love your perspectives, and the pine needles close-up is a real treat. Nature’s wonders all around.
