Yucca and the Sun
The family and I were having dinner on the patio when I noticed a lot of thin cirrus clouds moving in from the west. I didn’t see any clouds that would interfere with the sun near the horizon so I was completely convinced we were going to have a good sunset. I grabbed the gear and headed down the road. About a mile south of my home is miles and miles of native grass, and I’ve been wanting to get some Yucca plant shots for quite a while. Figured now was as good a time as any. Needless to say the sunset was not what I was hoping for, but I’m happy with what I came away with.
Today’s shot is the first 9 exposure HDR that I actually am happy with. Usually with such a large dynamic range, you are left with blown highlights or a very overcooked look. This one seemed to work out pretty well.
