The Glow of the City by UrbanRural-Photo The Glow of the City by UrbanRural-Photo
So cold this morning. Walking to my location in Gaswork Park all I could see is frost on the grass and the concrete. I was late getting out there this morning so I did not capture the sun coming up over the city but the clarity of the sky and the air was just perfect. I was going to call it a day and turn around and go back home but I said what the hey. Go thing I didn’t cause this was one of the better shoots this year. I got 4 good shots out of this one but I need to crop the second pano down to fit the print sizes. But I was able to get the normal 3 image HDR and a 6 image HDR and the pano is a 9 image photomerge HDR.
