Portland, OR // Wildwood Trail // HDR

Shot this on the Wildwood Trail in Macleay Park leading up to Pittock Mansion, which is accessible right from the city. All the fog, clouds coming and going, and massive trees made for a really beautiful hike!

This image is three exposures merged to HDR in Photomatix, editing with Lightroom and Nik Analog Efex Pro 2.

Anyone else on Ello? http://ello.co/jeffparkes

Found some really cool views of Seattle while exploring Queen Anne hill! We went there to visit Kerry Park but ended up finding a more interesting view just wandering around the neighborhood.

Amazing sunset tonight in Massachusetts. I only had my iPhone on me so I walked through cars in the grocery store parking lot to get a good angle of these power lines.

Jordan Pond - Acadia National Park

Hiked around the rocky shore of Jordan Pond until I found a spot to set up my Gorillapod on a rock to capture the crystal clear water. Converted 3 exposures (-2, 0, +2 EV) to HDR in Photomatix and edited with Lightroom and Nik Color Efex Pro.

Peeking at Boston from Lo Presti Park

The clouds looked heavy enough last night for a potentially interesting sunset so I drove over to East Boston to check out the view from Lo Presti Park. I took a "behind the lens" shot and included a bit more processing information on the full blog post: http://www.opticalbits.com/2014/06/09/peeking-at-boston-from-lo-presti-park/
