Wandering around a nearby state park, trying out some different techniques. Nice day to be doing just about any type of photography.
First, with the strong morning sun and no cloud cover shadows were going to be black, but contain some interesting details. So, go with HDR.
Nearing the top of the bluff with almost the whole lake spread out before us, good time to show the complete picture with a panoramic.
One of the most popular rock formations, and some clouds coming in for sky definition, along with a look at the rest of the lake. Don’t want the distortion of a really short lens, so another panoramic.
More clouds coming in fast but still plenty of sunshine overhead. With the contrast of rock, water, sky and foliage, time for infrared.
On the way down, along a forested trail, turn from the grand landscape to the intimate one.
All in all a nice walk through some varying terrain. What better way to spend a holiday?
