A rather unique winter in Central Oregon with some very cold, snowy weather that has endured for a few months. I hope you enjoy the images I captured below.


 

I have created two photo albums for these images:

CLICK on one of the two the LINK(s) below – then – click SLIDESHOW (FLICKR Photo Album – upper right corner) or click on the first image you see (Google Photo Album) then click the arrows to move to the next image. These images are VERY high quality and are NOT intended to be viewed on a mobile phone – use a computer monitor, your HDTV, Mac, iPad, notebook, or a laptop.

Reggie and I hiked to the summit of Smith Rock State Park (Misery Ridge trail) on a cold and icy Friday afternoon in January 2015 – and stayed on the summit until after dark to capture an amazing Central Oregon sunset – landscapes – and the moon rising. (Used crampons and hiking poles for safety).

This is High Dynamic Range photography or HDR. This is a method that adds more “dynamic range” to photographs. Dynamic Range is the ratio of light to dark in a photograph. Instead of just taking one photo, HDR uses three RAW photos, taken at different exposures (one image properly exposed, one two f stops under exposed and one image two f stops over exposed).

For each single image you see, there were three exposures combined to make it. In this case, the three images are uploaded into Adobe Lightroom 5.7 and then exported to Google’s NIK software preset — HDR EfexPro.  This is time consuming post production – yet – the results are gorgeous…providing the viewer of the images with an image that incorporates more detail, color and character than the human eye or a jpeg photo can capture.
