I love the contrasting views on this road in Idaho. You can see the difference that water and light make on the landscape. The slow melting snow waters the north facing sides of the mountains provide for growing a forest and the south facing side is barren because it melted too fast.

This view was especially engaging because of the different types of contrast it held. There’s complementary colors, there’s light and shadow and there’s soft and hard edges. All of this was contained beyond banded foreground that elicited my eye to inspect it closer. Remarkably there’s plenty to see and ponder.
