    Simply beautiful! Did you use focus stacking?

    Single exposure at f11 Dale. In 2017 I was using hyperfocal focusing and had focused on the rocks bottom centre which are approx 12ft (4m) from the camera. There are closer rocks that are also in focus but I cropped them out as they were dragging my eyes downwards too much. Nowadays I would focus on the middle distance sunlit trees at f11 or even f8 and taken another shot focusing on the foreground rocks but I find that the close focused shot is seldom needed. I hope tat  this helps. Ken

    Lovely composition, Ken. Nice to see you utilized some traditional photography techniques in capturing it.  I introduced hyperfocal focusing to a few participants in two different critique groups in recent months, one locally and another online group with the Photographic Society of America.  It was well received.  I continue to use the technique and have refrained from engaging in too many digital alternatives.  Great work!
