One of the great things about living where I do is the abundance of beautiful scenery so close by. Today’s capture is an example of this. I shot this photo on a brief detour I took the other day up one of the nearby canyons. In a short 15 minute break from my daily schedule, I was standing on the edge of a mountain creek photographing this rustic bridge.

To capture the rocks along with the bridge expanse I shot from a low angle with my widest lens at 24mm (the 5D’s full frame sensor means I get a ‘true’ 24mm). I then processed it in high-contrast black & white to further accentuate the detail and sharpness of the rocks and the bricks supporting the bridge.
