East Canyon Dam Climb

I processed several more photos from yesterdays photo safari.  Here's one I like taken from the top of the climb up East Canyon to the dam.  Nice climb and nice decent on a bike.

Looking for Fall part 2

On my search for what was left of the fall color tonight I found this little stream after taking a picture of the same scene from a different point of view.  A bit of a challenge climbing down to it, but worth while.  15 shot HDR.

Big Mountain Color

I've always wanted to take a picture from Big Mountain.  I ride East Canyon all the time and Big Mountain occasionally (not so much lately).  I had some time to kill so I took my camera and followed my East Canyon ride.  Here's an HDR pan from the top.  Salt Lake City is actually in the picture but maybe not visible at the resolution of this picture.  There is still a little bit of fall color.  Next year I'll have to do Big Mountain a little earlier.

Evanston Train Station

You may recall that we went searching for fall color last week and found some.  We ended up in Evanston and had a nice dinner.  Then, when it was completely dark, very windy and beginning to rain I found the Evanston train station.  Well, I'm required by some kind of weird self imposed rule to take a picture regardless of conditions.  I was freezing to death and most of the shots didn't turn out because the wind apparently was causing my tripod to move during my one and two minute exposures.  Well, this one turned out!  6 shooter HDR and no noise in the black sky.  It's a miracle!  It's Wyoming so it a 6 shooter not a 6 shot HDR just in case you were wondering.

On a Drive to Find Fall Color

I had a day off this week and got bored around the house and decided that when my wife got home from work we needed to go for a ride and find some fall color.  Here's a taste of what we found.  The fall colors weren't full on, but I like the pictures anyway.  The photo above was spotted by my wife, she's getting a good eye!  For those of you on Facebook my wife kept you up to date on our adventure as we ended up in Evanston, Wyoming for dinner.  This is a 15 picture (3 frames x 5 exposures) HDR panorama.  The picture below is down the street a few miles and is also a 15 picture HDR pan.

Snow Plow

This old snow plow is enjoying retirement.  Well maybe not.  At least that would not be my idea of retirement.  I don't want to be put on blocks and roped off.  This old snow plow now resides in West Yellowstone over by the old UP Railroad Station.  This is a five shot HDR.
