It's Saturday and I don't have to go into work (yeah!) and it looks like it is going to be a beautiful sunrise. So I jump in the car and head up to the foothills east of Idaho Falls just 15 minutes late! Even though I reached the top too late for predawn color, first light on the rolling foothills was gorgeous and there was still plenty of color in the sky and fields!
This image a manual digital blend of two bracketed shots to produce a "graduated neutral density filter" effect. I decided not to do hdr because in this case I didn't want the pinwheel effect you get as the windmills turn. to equalize the sky and ground even more I used the "multiply through a mask" technique which I promised to illustrate when I get a minute.
