This is another image from my trip to Colorado in early September. I was heading back to my AirBnB from the day’s hike and stopped on the side of the road photograph the stormy skies over the mountains. That bright ball of fire lighting up the middle plunged my foreground and the mountain into deep shadows. But LR and Topaz were able to pull them back to the light. LR then Adjust with a luminosity mask made with B&WEffects. D7000 12-24mm f/4 @ 12mm f/8 and 1/800sec ISO 100 handheld. Thanks for looking.
