Reworked a summer image from a few years back. This didn’t require too much, just a few tweaks and a bit of perspective straightening. While in college, several friends and I would come to “The Cascades” for some time when … Continue reading

After shooting the ice coated tree yesterday, I waited as the sun broke the horizon behind the trees hoping for a nice starburst.  Rather than the 16-35 I usually use for that, I mounted the 50mm Zeiss and got a … Continue reading

08.10.2016 Another spectacular New Salem sunrise

I made several exposures (times three for HDR) of sunrise from this well-visited spot.  I had posted one on Facebook which had required a fair amount of flare removal and I can see a few artifacts so will probably cast … Continue reading
