I love lense flares
I don’t always color grade but sometimes doing just a little bit goes along way to making ones pictures pop out for that wow factor.

Take a Step Into Alaska’s Backyard (Denali National Park & Preserve) by Mark Stevens
An ultra-wide angle view and image captured looking to the southeast from a side porch viewing area in the North Face Lodge area while staying a few days in Denali National Park & Preserve. With many images at this location, I’d focused on the snowcapped peaks of Denali as it seemingly rose above a nearby ridgeline. Here I pulled back on the focal length and went for that setting to just let the eyes take eyes take in the full spectacle of Alaska. My thinking was to angle my Nikon SLR camera slightly downward in order to capture more of a sweeping view across the tundra to my front. The colors of that tundra were starting to show some autumn colors with much more vibrant red and green. I did some initial post-processing work making adjustments to contrast, brightness and saturation while playing around as I learned how to work with DxO PhotoLabs 3 that I’d recently purchased after moving away from Capture NX2. I then cropped some of the foreground and blue skies to complement the wide angle view with a panoramic feel.
If you listen hard enough, you can hear every living thing breathing together. You can feel everything growing. We are all living together, even if most folks don’t act like it.

I’m always looking for good spots to shoot the sunset, and I love a high vantage point, so I’ve been searching google maps for rock outcrops on hills that might have a clear view of the western sky.
By the time I found a way to the top of this hill, I didn’t have much time to find the best view, so I settled with this one, started a timelapse then continued searching. Most of the views from this hill were obscured by trees, but I eventually found a good view of the lake, which I snapped a few photos of before leaving.

I made this time stack by combining 382 photos into one image. Here’s a quick and easy Photoshop tutorial of the process I use to make time stacks. https://youtu.be/oTfp47jTzWc
