Prairie Winter Sunset

Prairie Winter Pano

For my last blog post of the year I thought I’d present to you the view from about 2 miles from my door. My wife Sherri and I headed out before sunset to see what would develop. It turned out to be not as dramatic as I had hoped but never the less, fairly spectacular.

I shot this with 2 frames from my Nikkor 12-24mm using a Singh-Ray 3 stop hard graduated neutral density filter. I actually shot two 3 frame brackets but liked the density of the meter 0 exposure. Then I converted the RAW files into TIFFs and stitched the two with Panorama Maker. Final finishing touches were done in Adobe Lightroom, keeping the overall blue tone of the image while trying to keep the snow whitish.

Wishing you another year of great shooting!

In the best light…
