This photo was taken at sunrise on the Coon Creek boat ramp, which is along the northern side of Clinton Lake. The road to the boat ramp isn’t in the best of conditions, but it’s worth the view. I plan to explore this area more thoroughly when it gets warmer out.
The sun peeks from behind a tree on the Hill leading down to Memorial Stadium at the University of Kansas. This photo was an experiment in HDR, as well as an experiment with the recently re-released Oil Pain filter in Photoshop. I really like how the bright sunlight played off the dark, shadowed side of the tree in this image.
The sun glows on the hillside as it rises on a cool, Kansas morning. I used an ICE 10 stop ND filter in order to drag the exposure for 15 seconds. I like how it gives the water a nice, smooth look. I especially like the color the newly risen sun casts along the banks.
