Christmas Present

A month ago I was told that the company I was working for would be closed at the beginning of December. Not the best news just before Christmas, I am very pleased to say that yesterday I received a job offer which I have accepted and will be starting in the middle of January – a very nice Christmas present.

To celebrate last night I drove to Castle Hill on the way to Arthur’s Pass to take some photos, I hoped to get a nice sunset and try some HDR shots. As it turned out it wasn’t the best sunset there but still I got a few shots I am happy with. HDR was difficult as it was very windy and the flowers and grasses were moving rapidly – not ideal when trying to merge images into a tonemapped HDR. Still I gave it a go, some with multiple exposures and some creating an HDR from a single exposure.

Merry Christmas to everyone, have a safe and happy holiday.
