Sunrise on Turret Arch, through Windows Arch - Arches Ntl Park, Utah
Best Viewed Large
From the trip at the start of this year.  Wonderful warm morning sunlight breaking through.  I can’t say that the composition is original, though.  When you visit this location, you can climb around to the side opposite of the window where there is a spot that pretty much only one tripod will fit.  I’m sure if the surface wasn’t rock, I’d be putting my tripod in the same post holes as many who have come before me.

Photo Notes: Five frame HDR set, blended back into original photo with HDR image opacity reduced to 60%.  Area through the window used a virtual copy of the original photo that was adjusted a little differently, and then also blended with the HDR image opacity at 30%.

Eerie View - Canyonlands National Park - Utah

Another from the trip earlier this year. A chilly, hazy morning near Mesa Arch. The skies didn't cooperate much in providing a brilliant, glowing sunrise. However, the heavy haze, rising fog, and this bare tree made for a interestingly eerie scene.

Photo Notes: Single frame processed in Lightroom, converted to B&W using Nik Silver Efex.

Colorado Sunflowers

Out near the airport in Denver, Colorado, fields of sunflowers come to bloom every summer.  Sunsets here along the front range of the Rocky Mountains often provide for a fiery backdrop of red, pink, and gold hues for shots of the flowers.  However, this particular evening thick, ominous, stormy clouds prevailed.

Five bracketed frames processed in Lightroom 5 and Google/Nik HDR Efex Pro 2.  Layered into photoshop with the original middle frame of the bracket set, with the HDR layer set to a luminosity blending mode, and reduced to 15% opacity, providing a touch of additional definition to the clouds and bringing up some of the deeper shadows in the greenery of the flowers..

Canyon View - Canyonlands National Park - Utah

Taken from the trip at the beginning of the year. A cold, but luckily windless, morning at Mesa Arch in Canyonlands National Park. The morning initially started out pretty hazy, with the canyon filled with clouds. As the fog lifted, it revealed this scene. For those familiar with the area, the rock in the foreground on the left is the beginning of the right side of Mesa Arch.

Photo Notes: Two frames focus stacked in Photoshop. One, one for the distant view the other to bring the detail to the rocks in the foreground.

Engineer Mountain - Colorado

Photo Notes: Five bracketed frames processed in Lightroom 5 and Nik Collection HDR Efex Pro 2.  Original middle exposed frame was layered in Photoshop with the HDR version, and the HDR layer was reduced to 40% opacity.

Horses in Pasture Below Mt. Sneffels - Colorado

Another shot from this past fall. From the same area up CR 7 that the Autumn Reflections image I posted in October (just the other side of the pond). Absolutely gorgeous area that is between Ridgway and Telluride, in southwest Colorado.

Photo Notes: Three frame HDR processed in Lightroom and Google Nik HDR Pro 2.  HDR frame blended back into middle exposure frame with the opacity of the HDR layer reduced to about 35%.  Color balance adjustment on the mountains and Photoshoped to remove a truck and tent in the distance on right side.

East Beckwith Mtn, from Lost Lake Slough - Colorado
Click to View Large For Best Image
12,441 foot high (3792 m) East Beckwith Mountain from Lost Lake Sough at the Lost Lake campground.  It snowed overnight while staying at the Lost Lake Campground in the Kebler Pass area of Colorado.  It was so nice to be able to stumble out of the warm camper 100 feet to the shore for this morning shot, and then back to the camper for a nice hot breakfast. 

Five bracketed frames processed in Lightroom 5 and Nik Collection HDR Efex Pro 2.  Cleaned up some clutter in the water with the healing brush in Adobe Photoshop.

Denver, Colorado – Super/Harvest Moon

Technically, this isn't a super moon or the harvest moon, as it was taken the day after.  But … it is darn close.  Plotted our location and timing using +The Photographer's Ephemeris , we took a chance.  It had been cloudy and rainy all day leading up to this, but we went out anyhow and took a chance that there would be a break in the clouds.  

Even if the moon did not work out, it was going to be an opportunity to scout for an evening cityscape along the shore of Sloan Lake.  I was quite thrilled with sky and clouds as the moon began to rise behind the downtown Denver city scene.  I wish my exposure had captured some detail in the moon itself - I will know better next time.

Note on +The Photographer's Ephemeris  :  If you used the desktop version of this in the past that made use of Adobe Air (both Mac & Windows), you'll find your installed software no longer works.  As of about a week ago, they have moved the free desktop version to be supported by their web based app.  Still free, still a wonderful tool for plotting sun/moon locations for photography shoots.  Because the web address carries all the settings info for a specific view, I can give you all the exact plotting of when/where this shot was taken.  The only thing I am not sure of is that it says the moon's elevation at this time was 1.7 degrees above the horizon, and the image shows this to be different (so I think).  If you are a photographer, check out the link.  I think you will find it interesting.  
http://goo.gl/I83H57

Three images from a bracketed set were merged into an HDR using +Nik Collection by Google  HDR Pro 2.  The resulting image was blended back into the middle frame of the bracket set and opacity reduced to 43%.  Luminosity of the original image was blended back again at 100%.  Noise in sky and water was reduced using +Topaz Labs  DeNoise 5.
