Reflection Lake Sunset
This is 3 exposures blended together using my advanced Photoshop tonality control and multiple exposure blending techniques. I produced a video detailing these techniques, it's available here: www.zschnepf.com I also blended different focal points, it's really the only way to keep focus on this type of image. While scouting for the next day I stopped by Reflection Lake and was treated to a very cool sunset. This photo was taken while leading a workshop at Mount Rainier in August. I'll be…

Finally saw some wild flowers up at Reflection Lake. It is amazing the difference that 3 weeks of hot weather can make. Last time I was up the lake was still 80% covered in snow.

The Wildflowers of Paradise
www.davidrironsjrphotography.com Hello everyone. I decided to make an impromptu visit to Mt Rainier on Wednesday. I had nothing better to do after getting home from work at 12:30am! So I drove hoping to capture a fantastic sunrise with wildflowers and Mt Rainier. Mother Nature had other ideas, like fog! So what is a landscape photographer supposed to do? Well I hunkered down and made the best of the situation and found little compositions of flowers, deer, bees....those to come a little…
