Default Before the Storm

I met with a new group of people from a Facebook group and we planned an outing to the Elk Island National Park, East of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Over 15 people showed up and the beginning of the outing was nice, until ...









Two minutes later, it was raining hard and the lightning started.

All the above shots with the EM-5 and the 4/3 9/18mm, HDR using Photomatrix Light.

Enjoy !

Gilles

That last image is the winner. The landscape features and threatening sky create a cool, dramatic look. That one image was worth the trip. Thanks for sharing.

We need rain......bad. My mother lives in Wichita Falls, on the Texas/Oklahoma border. It has not rained there in forever, and the high temperature yesterday was 106 degrees. June 4 is a little early for numbers like that, even here.

A really nice series. I also choose the last one as my favorite, and it definitely has a dramatic look. Well done.

.....great set Gilles, the 9-18 was a great choice too. The last is the winner of these.

Thanks .... Bob

ditto what everyone else said the shots are really nice and HDR was applied nicely.

Did you bracket or start with a single RAW image?

I did a 3 shots bracketing with 1 stop interval, merge them with Photomatix light and postprocessed them in Photoshop Elements V9 (yes, I still use it) and I used some TopazLabs filters for effects.
