March has been a busy month for us, but we did take one day toward the end of the month and head ‘up island’ to Cathedral Grove. A part of MacMillan Provincial Park, Cathedral Grove has been ‘gentrified’ to provide easy access to a stand of several-hudred-year-old Douglas fir and cedar trees. Unfortunately many of the trees are suffering from root rot/fungal infection, and a heavy wind can bring down a rain of branches. Fortunately for us, on the day we were there we had sunshine (it only rained while we were driving), little wind, and not many other people. I made over 400 images that day, almost all of them for HDR/panoramic images, and collapsed that number down into less than fifty composites. I’ve joined them all up but have yet to push them around in Lightroom. I do have a couple, however, and thought I’d share them here. Both are 3-shot bracketed exposures (HDR, at +1/0/-1) and converted to B&W in Lightroom.
Okay, that’s it. Now go out and make some photographs!
