When I awakened this a.m. at five o’clock and then drove up and then hiked Albion Basin with a friend of mine, I didn’t envision the color explosion that was to happen high on the west side of Albion Basin in Alta Ski Resort in Utah. The wildflowers have been awesome fed by a rainy season, which created some of the colors you see. Contrary to popular opinion, the shot is made in camera with a circular polarizer, and three Singh-Ray Graduated Neutral Density filters, a 4-stop Reverse Graduated Neutral Density, a 3-stop Soft-step Graduated Neutral Density, and a 2-stop Soft Step Graduated Neutral Density. Then just get your exposure correct, with some minor movement of the hand-held neutral densities up and down during exposure.
