Late Winter Scenics on Peebles Island

This Winter which includes some of the coldest months in recent decades has left it's mark on my photographic activities.  And while it has been a bit more seasonal lately - it actually hit the 50 degree mark earlier this week - there's still lots of ice and snow and frozen water lines.

I did take the opportunity to venture onto Peebles Island late this afternoon mostly for exercise but I also carried a lightweight tripod, and a camera with Canon's ultra wide STM lens. Here are three of the photos.

All are five file HDR processed images using HDRSoft's Photomatix Essentials software. Processing five files from a 20MP camera in this software takes about ten minutes for each photo. Maybe my 2010 MacBook Pro is getting a bit long in the tooth.

As usual, the caption information is for the normally exposed image. The other four merged images were one and two stops over and under exposed.

I like the third one with the footstep remnants. Evidently compacted snow melts slower.
