Thirty-nine souls followed me on this hike last Wednesday, Jan 15th. This is the same hike that George, Mark, and I did on New Years Eve (see earlier post “Canyon at the End of the Year”) Normally I wouldn’t have written about such a recent hike a second time, but I was experimenting with a new (to me) technique for photographing in canyon bottoms and similar highly shaded environments. The technique, called HDR (High Dynamic Range) processing, compares multiple exposures of the same scene at a number of different exposure levels and builds a “melded” copy which evens out the shadows and the bright areas to provide a more natural looking image. The scenes below were shot with that technique. The sequence starts as we entered the canyon from the desert with Picketpost in the distance, and ends with a view of the north face of Picketpost Mountain where we turned around.
