It’s been a couple of weeks since my last blog post. Like many of us, life seems to get in the way of photography. It’s all good, but some weeks there is just too much and something has to give.
Last Saturday I spent a morning with Jess Yarnell and her dad Paul at Circle B Bar Reserve. It’s still early in the season for the winter birds, foggy sunrises and cool mornings, but we were hoping for some migrants to make the heat somewhat bearable. The migrants were not to be found, but we did find plenty of mosquitoes. We also found the Limpkin family which I’ll write about later. Today, however, I thought I would share a couple of sunrise images from that day. Sunrise photography can be frustrating, but also very rewarding.
This first image is a 3-frame +/- 1 EV HDR with a little Topaz Spicify in the clouds to enhance the shadows.
The second image is a 3-frame +/- 1 EV HDR with no additional post processing.
If nothing else, our day was certainly off to a beautiful start.
