This is an image that I took back in 2013 with my MKii but never got around to reworking for various reasons. This was taken up at Diablo Lake at sunset high up in the North Cascades. It’s a panoramic image consisting of nearly 100 photos, yep that’s right 100! I shot them with about 70% overlap so I would venture to guess that 50 or 60 of them actually went into stitching this one together. In any case this photo is HUGE. When I first shot/processed this one I didn’t even use photoshop the way I use it today so the scene was in no way what I saw and the stitching was off in some places. This one is completely reworked from top to bottom. The splashes of yellow you see in the darker areas are actually maples and larches showing off their fall color as this was taken in October. This was a complete nightmare in post because I didn’t really know about bracketing etc a few years back. Hints why the sky is a bit blown out in areas but in any case this is still one of my favorite images for me personally. Thanks for having a look!
