Pend Oreille Purple

Taken on March 14, 2018

Pend Oreille Point, March 14, 2018. Paired with my new Sony A7R iii, the 16-35mm f/2.8 G Master lens produces a crisp, clean and clear picture rivaled by very few. This was my first time to travel with my two week old Sony, so I was chomping at the bit to explore the dynamic range this camera is capable of. Boy was I satisfied. Sandpoint has been a second home to my family and me for the last ten years. This trip was a special one because it marked our tenth year and it was the first time bringing my new fianc√© along. After skiing and dinner, we got to the house and I ran outside with my tripod, camera and lenses. I set everything up and moved around, taking as many pictures, as fast as I could. Out of several hundred photos, this happened to be my *second* favorite of the evening. My first favorite I have chosen to keep to myself, but have displayed it on my instagram and website. After playing with some settings, I feel the water looked the best in this picture with a nice, smooth look. I was able to “pop” all kinds of colors out of the sky and really create an amazing looking photo with little editing. I hope everyone enjoys this photo as much as I have! – Colby Carpenter
