My lovely bride and I took a drive yesterday. Our original intent was to take a hike on the Carson River Trail, but the mosquitoes overtook us a short distance in and we called it off. We drove around the ‘West Loop,’ which is my name for the area west of US 395 in the Carson Valley. To our surprise and delight, Mottsville Lane was open (it’s been underwater frequently this Spring!). We found this image on a road south of Mottsville.
I explored some of the wonderful features of my PowerShot G9 to make this image. I mounted the camera on a tripod, set it to bracket exposures, and used the time delay to minimize camera movement. I assembled the HDR in Adobe Camera Raw (a very cool new feature in ACR!) and finished the processing in On1 PhotoRAW.
