ISO 200

As I have not taken any new images that I have been satisfied with for a while, I decided to post a version of a scene captured a couple of years ago. That image did not include Mt. Brewer, so using my new panorama software; I stitched two separate images together to create this view. Now I am able to post this scene more closely to the way it was witnessed. The previous post of this scene was also processed using Photomatix HDR; however once these two separate shots were stitched, I processed the final image as a single raw file.

Another reason I wanted to post a second version of this image, is because this is one of my favorite captures from one of my favorite backpacking trips. Standing above Bullfrog Lake taking in this sunrise view was one of my most memorable rewards.
