Since Nicki was in class this morning, Deb and I thought we’d explore the area a bit, perhaps spending some time at a park where Enzo could stretch his legs and be a dog for a while. I searched for parks near Williamsburg, Kentucky, and soon learned that we were just 20 minutes from the Cumberland Falls State Resort Park. Becky had earlier recommended this park to us, so we decided to check it out.
The park and falls are truly beautiful, perfect for some High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography. This is the process that uses computer software to combine several separate photos, typically three, taken at different exposure settings. The result is a single photo with striking color and detail, much greater than what can be captured in a single picture. This process is often used by professional photographers for nature shots.
Below is a sampling of the HDR images I created from today’s hike at the Cumberland Falls, truly a beautiful area.
