I’m still playing “catch-up”, still a week behind in the blog, and months behind in reading 🙂 Today marks one year since I actually registered as a WordPress user, although I didn’t start blogging until one week later, so I feel compelled to at least update the blog today, so I’ve managed to choose a photo from Week 18 of this year, processed it in one of my favourite ways, HDR, and even uploaded it 🙂
On the 5th of May, Cinco de Mayo, Arrival Day, or whatever you want to call it, I went with Naseem and Nikhil for a drive and photo-jaunt between Good Hope on the East Coast of Demerara and Rosignol at the mouth of the Berbice River (West Coast Berbice), needless to say we took a lot of photographs.
Our first stop was at the village of Enmore, we were going to go see the Enmore Martyr’s Monument, but the bridge we were planning on using was unusable, opposite that bridge there was a nice scene, so we took some time to “grok” it (as Nik would say) and even took some photos, I took a set of bracketed shots to use for an HDR rendition, and that’s what I present to you today. All the original images came out dark and desaturated as I expected, since I was shooting into the sun, but since I planned on using them in an HDR, that was OK 🙂
As an HDR, I really suggest you click on it to see it at the Gallery!

I cannot figure out where the last week went since we went on that trip. I’ve taken out my camera once since then. Thank goodness we got a few usable photos from that trip. I guess I will put mine like this up sometime next week.
Thanks Nik, time does seem to fly fast these days
Great shot and processing. Did you use a tripod ?
Thanks Fidal, I never seem to have my tripod handy when I do these things, didn’t have it this time either 🙂
Congratulations on the year and a stunning image.
Thanks Nigel, next week is the real year :-). But thanks much!
A year sure doesn’t seem a lot but, when it comes to blogging it sure seems like a lifetime doesn’t it? Congratz on making that landmark! 😀
Thanks David, I am more inclined towards celebrating the year after the first post, which will be this weekend 🙂 You are right, a year doesn’t seem long sometimes, but since I never really thought I’d ever blog, much less be doing it at least weekly now, I think that’s an accomplishment 🙂
Did I just read that you didn’t use a tripod? I’m so impressed! I know what you mean about the frustration of falling behind…so much I want to do and so little time!
Yes Cindy, I never seem to have it around when I need it, and when I do walk with it, i seldom use it and it just gets in the way 🙂
I think the advancement of the software helps a lot in the alignment, but I really should use a tripod more for these 🙂
I am catching up as well 😉
Lovely shot. Those clouds are quite dramatic.
Thanks Sasi, I find I have a weakness for dramatic clouds, I did the post processing to get as much out of the clouds as I did to get detail in the central subject 🙂
