Me, up near Kinder Downfall
Well my vision was not I had hoped from my previous trips to the area where I got some stunning shots. After walking all that way, the waterfall was frozen solid, and just blended in to the surrounding rock! Very disappointing. In black and white, which I was shooting (I use Fuji Acros 100 for landscape work), you would not have been able to make out the waterfall ice from the surrounding rock ice. It was just rock and ice everywhere.
Hey, you can’t win them all. Landscape work is like that sometimes. Lots of effort for zero return, but the memories and adventure are always worth it!
My friend got a fairly good photo out of the deal though, with his son (shot using 150mm Sonnar, Sekonic meter reading) :
