This shot is from a few years ago and is one of my very first HDR shots and remains one of my favorites. If I showed this to a 100 people in Austin I doubt 5 people would know where this was shot and even believe me when I told them right here in Austin. This scene is tucked away right off hwy 360 and immediately removes you from the sounds of the cars and construction from the city and puts you somewhere far away from the city even though you are right in the middle of it. While here all the city sounds were drowned out by the sound of the water coming down the rocks. While I have not been back here in a few years I highly doubt you will see the same thing upon a return trip today. Central Texas is in the middle of a severe drought and many of the once flowing creeks are bone dry. To add some light to the rocks in the front I added a fill flash. Using the flash and then blending the exposures really helped me get a much broader dynamic range. Enjoy!
