The Story

I’m in the process of swapping in 3TB hard drives in my Drobo 5D and each one requires about 6 hours of healing. That’s just fine by me because I’ve got some serious catching up to do with some of my TV shows. In the meantime, I also wanted to share a shot of the sun setting over the beautiful Columbia River Gorge taken in June. How can you ever get tired of photographing this place?

In terms of processing

This is a seven exposure HDR image tone-mapped in Photomatix Pro.

I applied Magic Sunset, Orton Hears A Who, and a custom Tonal Contrast effect using Perfect Effects 4 by onOne Software.

Final touches were applied in Lightroom 4.3 RC.
