I'm breaking this blog entry into three parts. I try to keep these things a certain length with about four photos. From this morning's post rain hike on Peebles Island, I've got nine or ten photos and a couple of video clips. So I'm breaking it into three parts.
First, here are some trail scenics incorporating standing water on and along the trails. Equipment used is a Canon EOS 5D Mark III and EF 24-100mm f/4L USM lens. These shots are all five bracketed files processed in HDRSoft's Photomatix Pro software using the vibrant preset.
