On Sunday we finally got warmer weather and blue skies. I really wanted to get a blue-skied shot from Tunnel View and I knew Sunday was going to be the day for it. I was also excited because there were still some clouds around that would make the shot a bit more interesting.
The lighting was decent for shooting at noon, but things still were a bit murky without taking multiple exposures. I really wanted to capture the fact that there is still SNOW in the mountains (near Half Dome).
This is the HDR version. I'm really trying to get *away* from shooting HDR's but the lighting was so bad this weekend that I couldn't help it. Since this shot actually had decent lighting, I decided to keep it and post both the HDR and non-HDR versions. Which do you like better?!
