The Storm Within

Newer Older

This is another shot from the same location as the previous image taken about five minutes later. You can see this great divide opening up from top to bottom in the thunder cloud. It was a beautiful storm moving and changing rapidly.

Shot was taken on a tripod at about 25 sec using bulb mode. Manual focus set to infinity. ISO 100 and f/4.

This is a single image HDR with nine 0.5 incrrements and assembled using autoHDR. I am just starting to learn HDR.

    Falling into the sapphire stars, I was set upon by a brilliant white light and drawn to earth again.

    This is stunning indeed! I am just starting to learn HDR as well. I have just tried one of my first shots ever using a Nikon D5100 with the night sky. Not too shabby if I do say so myself, but hoping to learn more as I play around with it :)
