Photo of the Day
While in Colorado I was taken around by some locals to find some interesting locations. One of those was near the cabin we stayed in. Just down the road is a place called the Hahn’s Peak Roadhouse. They have a lot of the items that you need as well as a restaurant. They have these beautiful horses as well for the sleigh rides that they offer at night. The rides are well worth it. If you are ever in the area give them a try. I saw this white horse up against the white snow, and I knew that I had a picture here. I had to wait a bit for the horse to look at me, but I was glad that he did. While we were in Colorado the area was pounded by snow giving this photo a nice background.
The shot was nearly black and white to begin with so I just converted it the rest of the way using Silver Efex Pro. One of my favorite filters in the program is one called fine are process. This really gives me a look that I love. I brought the photo back into Lightroom for a couple of tweaks, but it was really an easy edit. Nik software being bought by Google really was great because the price of this program went down allowing me to buy it. It is really a valuable tool to have if you like to create black and white images.
