I’ve started taking pictures again, after a couple weeks off. There have been too many good scenes to resist!
First, a moonset and sunrise. Both of these images were created using an HDR plugin for Aperture, made by HDRsoft. I take multiple exposures of the same scene, and use the plugin to combine them into one superphoto, and then tweak the settings until I get a satisfactory image.
Before sunrise, the crescent moon was hanging over the mountains, surrounded by purple sky. This photo consists of 3 separate exposures.
Then, the sunrise began. This photo was made from 6 separate exposures.
It was foggy most of the day Wednesday, and the resulting moisture froze overnight, leaving a coating of ice over everything.
As I was preparing to feed the dogs last night, the sky lit up with one of the most amazing sunsets I’ve seen here. We’re on the downward slope of an east-facing hill, so we missed the full effect, but here’s what I could capture.
Too bad we don’t have a more scenic foreground, but it’ll do for now.
