Shoot What’s There

Winter Evening

Well you know that I’m probably not going to be shooting white sand beaches with palm trees in Canada in January. So, I shoot the white snow fields of the Alberta prairies where I live. We left the warmth of our house on New Year’s Day to do my first outing of the brand new year. We returned to a location that I’ve recorded images from before, where we had permission from the farmer to photograph on his property.

I used 4 frames of a 5 frame bracket. I thought the +2.0 exposure had so little detail that it would be not much use. After processing the frames in HDR Efex Pro 2, I left Adobe Lightroom again to adjust the foreground in Nik Viveza 2.

Nikon D300s, Nikkor 24-70mm, @24mm, f/11.0, ISO 200.

In the best light…

  1. I like the simplicity of this image. Beach and palm trees are very exotic, indeed. But our winter landscape can generate beautiful imagery. 😉
