Aurora HDR Master of the Month

Congratulations to the Winners:

JP Murphy

The morning sunlight that day of November was fantastic. I grabbed my kit, hopped on the ATV, and headed down our mountain road. This scene presented itself as I hunted a vantage point looking into Elk Creek Valley. The mist and fog that often moves down stream with the flow of Elk Creek radiated the sunlight nicely. I shot a six frame series for HDR processing. It was not until I began processing the image that I realized the reflection in the pond. That is the peak of Point Lookout Mountain, the next mountain over from Briar Patch Mountain (where I was located), which is obscured from the direct line of sight by the rising mist. Sort of a bank shot, in pool terms, you could say.
