Today, well, technically yesterday, as it’s past midnight now, but we want to be lenient, today is this blog’s birthday. We’ve come quite some way together, from very literal beginnings to a much greater freedom of expression now. Am I weary? No 🙂
We had high fog today that lasted until well after noon. I made three attempts at photographing, a macro session in the morning, a garden session just when the sun came out, and finally the results came with the afternoon session when I took the car for the wider surroundings.
This image was shot with the Nikon 18-200 at 18mm and f11. It is an HDR image merged from seven exposures and tone mapped in Photomatix Pro. You may or may not like the particular style that I chose, but one thing is for sure: without HDR this would not have been an image at all.
The Song of the Day is of course Stevie Wonder’s “Happy Birthday”, originally on the 1980 release “Hotter Than July”. Enjoy it on YouTube.
