a tripod equals sharper images

Still looking at old files, I find an entire folder from a trip in 2004 to the Grand Tetons that I hadn’t processed! When I saw images from Swabacker Landing, that morning became fresh in my mind. It was way below freezing and a layer of frost covered everything. Gorgeous. Here’s one of my favorites from that morning.

This image is so incredibly sharp that there’s no doubt I used a tripod. Check out this 100% crop of the reflection:

I should also mention that this image is made up of 5 vertical shots which accounts for the size at 100%.
Yes; I acknowledge the difference tripods can make! They’re just too much of a hassle so I will still rarely carry one 🙂
