I was driving home last night and saw this in my rear view mirror. It inspired me to pull over and grab some shots. Nature has always been my inspiration.

Thanks for looking!

Ryan

Thank you Jane! I am lucky indeed! There was another guy driving the other way and I saw him jump out and set up his tripod. It was a beautiful thing to see!

Thanks again for the kind words.

Ryan

Great capture. Nice composition with the dark and sharp rocks against the soft glowing light.

Beautiful and awe-inspiring shot!

My wife and I were curious how much, if any, retouching was needed as that looks ethereal and almost magical.

Neither have I James. It was a rare combination of sun and rain at the end of the golden hour.

Thanks for looking!

Hello ramorak,

I am no expert at post processing, but here is what I did. I shot this in RAW format and used lightroom2 to apply the "Cloudy" setting. That did not change the image much, just warmed it up a little. I lightened the foreground a little and bumped up the clarity. That's about it. I plan on posting a couple of the other shots I took with no PP so you can see it untouched. The scene did not need much help. The words you used to describe it all came to me when I saw it as well.

Thanks for the great comments. You made my day!

Thanks Keller. It makes it kind of hard to come in doors with all of that beauty going on out there!

Enjoy!

Thanks for the reply re. the workflow for your shot! (and the votes so far reflect my feelings on the image )

And lol, re. the halloween pic. The kids love this time of year but I am sure Mairi enjoys the dressing up even more.
