Wind Redux

    Newer Older

    Please note: This is not my photo. This photo was taken by Giant Ginkgo during a flight near Denali during a spell of amazingly good weather. There are lots of excellent photos of the mountain at his Flickr page. Here is the original.

    I saw this photo and I immediately thought it was an ideal candidate for tone mapping. The remapped color version was good, but the black and white version was better. The results were quite satisfactory, save the posterization in the sky. Alaska skies always posterize on me.

    Lenticular clouds usually indicate very high winds, and forthcoming rough weather. "Rough" is a gentle term to describe the weather on this mountain.

    Red Zena, Rogue Costumes, JaredKS, and 60 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      It's very nice. It seems it invites you to a challenge to climbe. I like that thin clouds on the mountains after wet, windy and cold weather in hight altitude.
