During the night the heavens opened up on us and didn’t stop until dark. No matter, we went out shooting any hoo and were greatly rewarded. We went back to the trestle and with the rain, it was even better. Now, how was I going to make the image? I had plenty of on site time to think about it since there is only one spot that is dead center in the tracks. So I stood, waited an thought. The way I ended up doing it and liking the results was this HDR “tilted” image. I just wanted a little in focus and then let the lines do the rest.

With the rain came wet rocks everywhere. This made this photograph possible because otherwise, all the rocks on the side of the river would have been white, ugly and a visual eyesore. This is a 6 image – image. The base for all the trees and sky is a 5 frame HDR. The River is a straight shot. Then in PS, the HDR image and River image were combined. It was a great morning, wet, but great!
