…efforts of a want-a-be photographer

Great Falls Park – HDR

It was a beautiful day in northern Virginia, albeit a bit cold.  There’s just something about winter and leafless trees that I do not find appealing.  I grew up in northeast Alabama, and while the trees lost their leaves in winter, the woods were filled with varying types of evergreens.  The pine and cedar trees at least kept a little green sprinkled throughout the landscape.  I’m certainly ready for spring.

It’s been a crazy couple of weeks with little time to get out with my camera.  Here’s my latest effort in learning to use Nik Software’s HDR Pro 2.

And one that isn’t HDR.
