Another morning early out of bed (6.20am), after a quick bite and half a glass of coke (No time for freshly grated coffee this time), jumped on the bike and started driving for another misty sunrise, boy this could the start of an addiction !

As I'm writing this, my eyes are weary and want to close and take a nap, that hot shower must have something to do with it, but I surely needed that after riding through that cold for about 3 hours I was cold to the bone, or as Artie would put it, my balls froze off ! Quick check, no they're still there, pffew, LOL !-)


This time got treated to a bit of Alice in Chains, so the link to that can be found a bit further on.

Boy, another loss for human kind, what a voice !


The shot


Standard 3 exposures HDR [-2,0,+2EV] in RAW/ISO100 at f/14 on a tripod using the Sigma 10-20mm lens and a remote control.




Tonemapped using the detail enhancer.




° A little curves in the red only to bring back the green colour of the grass in front.

° A very small amount of extra red and yellow saturation (+6).

° A tiny bit of extra brightness.

° Noise reduction on the red channel.

° An unsharp mask to make the foreground grass pop a bit more.




All comments, criticism and tips for improvements are ( as always ) welcome.
