This is a similar but different image from that which I posted back in October. Again, sorting through files I decided to give this a go as it includes the sun which I had avoided in the previous composition seen here.
This is a combination of three exposures processed initially through Nik’s HDREfex Pro and then modified in Photoshop which was also the case with the first post.
The title? That’s a reference to a recent post by my friend Greg Russell. If you are not familiar with Greg, he is a great photographer of the west and writes some very thoughtful and thought provoking posts. Worth a click. I agree completely with his point that the real reason we are out there is for the love of place and photography. Although I have some vivid color in this image, that is not the reason for the photograph but rather the excitement and pleasure of the experience at that moment which I hope you can sense in this image….and the less colorful ones that are often my ice or fog shots.
