A view of Mt. Rainier from the east, along the White River:
I brought this image together using HDR Efex Pro 2 from four raw photographs. It was a bit of a salvage effort, since the sky was particularly hazy the day we visited. I was impressed at the software’s ability to pull detail out of the sky, avoiding a flat white backdrop for the snow-shrouded peaks.
Another shot from last summer’s road trip to the Canadian Rockies:
This is a shot across Moraine Lake, just at sundown. We scrambled to get there while the light was still up — we were too late to do any hiking around the lake, but at least I was able to get this shot. Or to be precise, three shots combined as an HDR image.
Taken from a bend in the highway on our Canadian rockies road trip last summer:
Living near the Rockies in Colorado, I never ceased to be amazed how much bigger they look in Canada — thanks to the glaciers, the valleys just got ground down that much deeper. For a true sense of scale, look for the cars and trucks on the highway here…
Captured as we were heading to Juneau, Alaska — via the inland passage.
The inland passage is pretty calm to begin with — I took this shot early in the morning while the water was even more still.
