Eastern Sierra Adventure – April ’10

We’re announcing our next Eastern Sierra Adv, April 08-11, 2010. Basing out of Lone Pine, CA, we’ll shoot until we drop for four days some of the best and least known treasures the Eastern Sierra has to offer. From snow to wildflowers, to the highest and lowest point in North America, we’ll try to see it all. Locations such as Alabama Hills (photo below), Stovepipe Wells, Bristlecone Pines (if open), Mt Whitney, unnamed canyons and never explored washes to ghost towns are on the menu.

For the most part I liked my new approach to finishing of the HDR in Photoshop (nothing different in Photomatix). It’s still a work in progress to achieve what I was seeing in my mind’s eye on paper.

This is one of the images I came back with that I really like.
