HDR photography of cloud break in the mountains during sunset in Snowdonia, Wales.
I took the ascent up through Devil's Kitchen.This is on the top of Y Garn looking ESE towards the sea. Weather was freezing cold due to wind chill factor and I almost didn't take the shot as I didn't have my gloves... Will definitely not forget them next time as winter is definitely here to stay.
I had my trusty 14-24mm attached to my D800, but found that I could not get close enough (due to a valley) for this crop so was pleased to be carrying my 24-70mm.
This HDR was generated from one RAW photo. I had to use HDR as there was too much dynamic range for a correct exposure. I did use a tripod and take x3, x5, exposure series but found that the clouds were moving way to fast for any of the combined exposures to be of any use during post production as it is the clouds which are the main feature.
