Congratulations to Mark Metternich for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 6 votes - View Previous Winners


The news kept calling it "the 20 year monsoon season." My clients and I were forced back to our cars due to being pelted with hail and wind and lightning striking everywhere. We waited about 1-2 hours and I ran back out with them to help them capitalize on the highest water levels I have seen here in 15 years of photographing and guiding.

Another shot from here (already posted) here: 10 Year Monsoon

Logistics: after pointing out the uniqueness of this particular pool of water, my clients pounced on it! I took a quick shot just to help show the others how I might approach the scene, then ran off to help the others.

See you out there this year for hopefully even more action! 🌩️

Camera and Processing:

Sony A7R2
Canon 11-24@15mm
f/22
100 ISO
4 seconds.

Processed starting with a Linear Raw File (Linear Profile) in Lightroom, and now being able to use multi lossless Raw Curve Masks in Camera Raw (one of the greatest game changers in processing history!) the critical 2.2 gamma curve was applied, the separate custom mid-tone and custom end points curves, and the custom global tone mapping/contrast curve (to make a Custom Raw Profile). After that, overall labor was massively reduced because most of the work was done, before sliding even a single slider in Lightroom! There is NOTHING like the Ultimate Lossless Adobe Raw on Raw Layer workflow for unprecedented truly lossless quality.

Beautiful!
Our weather here the past several years has been sink or swim. This year it's for sure swim. Lakes, at least in my area of AZ are full and in some cases overflowing. And we are under a winter storm warning for today the 22nd. With another storm predicted to hit Sunday.

Good for wildflowers. But now I'm hearing with the temps getting at or near freezing it may affect even that and kill off the flowers.

Stunning, as is so often the case with your images. Presume a polarizer was used to maximize reflection.

No polarizer was used. Thank you for the compliments!
