AvalancheFalls

An exciting day of hiking resulted in a nice image from Avalanche Gorge at Glacier National Park. While I haven’t been a fan of the “far-out” HDR images, I do appreciate HDR’s ability to pull an image out of rough. This scene has an incredible range of tones from super white to near black. Photomatrix software is relatively simple and easy to use. In the field, you simply capture a range of different exposures. Using a tripod, I shot multiple images with one fixed aperture. The shutter speed was the variable. If the the aperture is adjusted, the focus point will shift making for a miss align final image.
