Cascade River Sunset in Winter

The Cascade River at sunset

The calm before the storm produced a stunning sunset. As I stood watching, the temp was quickly dropping and there was a feeling of a storm coming. It’s only mid-Jan, and the water was forming skim and slush ice. It’s a cold year. We should see some ice this week if the wind tones down.

Picture taken with my D200 and 12-24DX. I took 5 exposures and blended them using Enfuse via the buggy Lightroom interface.

    This looks great Bryan – very natural, which can be tough for some to achieve with blended exposures. I like the composition with the outlet of the river, I don’t recall seeing an image exactly like it. Nice work!

    Thank Joel. I’m really impressed with Enfuse. It doesn’t seem to created an ugly blended exposure.

    For the image, as you can probably see, I used a simple three triangle composition. A tool I’ve been using for the last half year now.
