Default Winter on Cape Cod

Well this Winter has been a very cold and white one, to this point. And, based on this week's forecast, nothing is going to change anytime soon. There is another storm due in the middle of the week that is expected to dump 15' to 20" of the white stuff.

We had a respite today, with temps moderating and the sun finally popping out
a bit to help melt some of the ice that is everywhere.

I don't have photos of beautifully painted doorways with the sun beaming down. But, I did manage to catch a fairly nice sunset today at Paine's Creek in Brewster.

This is a hand held 5 frames HDR @ 1/3 exp. comp. using the E-30 + 12-60mm SWD lens.

My first successful image after many attempts without the use of a tripod.

Excellent Zig. That is especially good to be handheld for 5 exposures!

Big chunks of ice there, looks like that's going to need some stronger sunshine to melt those. But cheer up, you be down here soon, and we were in the mid 70's today. Weather-wise, this weekend was the first normal weekend in ages. Hope it stays normal for you while you vacation in south Florida.

P.S. I took my 70-300 out for the first time this week end. Got some good shots. When I get time I will post a few on the forum.

Wow Zig, you must be frozen still just like the ice so you can take 5 shots without any movement. I have never tried AE bracket shots without a tripod.

I'll second that. Don't care how fast the burst and bracket is, five frames is a long time to try and handhold for what is going to be one combined file.

I'll third that. I'm impressed.
I remember your sunrise shots from last year down south. I'll be interested to see how you do with your new setup.

Hi Guys,

Thanks for the kind words.
As for my hand holding the camera and the results. I really think it has more to do with the software's ability to merge the frames more than my holding the camera steady. Maybe I just got lucky.
