This weekend, though I have not done enough hiking training this summer, I set out on a very hot day to summit Dirty Harry Peak.
A weekend in Chicago distilled down to 4 minutes.
Here is a photo I took at the Gamble house in LA, the pinnacle of Arts and Crafts architecture. The inside of the house was dark and one could only walk around with a tour, so I didn’t come away with any interesting pictures. On the grounds however, free to roam, I took this picture of some of patio fashioned out of clinker bricks.
Traveling up British Columbia’s route 99 is known as the Sea to Sky highway as it takes you from the water’s edge to high up in the mountains. When going to Whistler we drove up in a snow storm so we didn’t get to sett any of the beauty. On the way back the skies were a little clearer.
A great picture of why I have not been posting on my blog much this winter. Washington has such great mountains I’ve spent almost every weekend skiing.
Reflecting on the year: This year is drawing to a close and as part of a retrospective look on the year I am finishing and publishing several blog posts that at one point I started and never completed.
While in Philadelphia I sent some time playing around with High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography. For me to create images containing a larger dynamic range than my camera is able to capture I took several exposures with different EV values, to capture highlights, mid-tones, and shadows in detail and then composited the images together to create on image with a larger dynamic range than I would normally be able to capture.
