Aspen Path in Rocky Mountain National Park

More fun with a circular fisheye, creating a snow globe effect without the snow! (On my way back from Rocky Mountain National Park, I noticed airport security has quite the collection of snow globes)! I liked the way the fisheye wraps around the aspen trees and pulls everything close together for an interesting canopied look. It's so hard not to get my toes or tripod legs in the picture, but it's worth the effort. This image was taken with a full frame sensor camera (Nikon D3s) and a Sigma 8mm fisheye lens, producing an entirely circular fisheye photograph. The aspen are turning orange and gold in the higher elevations around Bear Lake and are really quite beautiful. Enjoy Autumn!
