I photographed this scenic landscape along Utah Route 9 driving from east to west (and a bit south as well). This scene jumped out at me, luring me to it. I pulled over to the side of the road, set up my camera and made a number of exposures in and around this spot. This image stood out from the pack, after all part of the art of photography is the selection of one or two exposures from a series to work further on. As I was working on this image the idea that it should be printed in black and white emerged. The topographic layering, the sparse trees, the two hills in the background and the high clouds are all features that seem to demand the monochrome approach. This image is the result of the process of selecting and editing as one creates a photograph.
A limited edition of 25 prints signed and numbered by the photographer are available directly from our studio. Sizes equivalent to any of the sizes offered as a print by demand through this online gallery are offered in this limited edition. These prints are only available directly from our studio gallery. Prints are delivered by US Mail rolled in a tube. For more information please contact me using the SEND PRIVATE MESSAGE option in the left sidebar of most of our online gallery pages.
I processed the raw image file shot with a Canon 60D with an 18-55mm IS lens using Photomatix Pro 5, filters from Topaz Labs including Detail 3, BW Effects, ReMask 4 and DeJPEG 4 as well as some minor tweaking in Photoshop including sCurve adjustments, brightness, saturation and the camera raw filter to produce this Black and White HDR image.
I donate 25% of the profits from the sale of this image to PROJECT ZERO: The Project to End Prostate Cancer in order to help develop better detection, prevention and a cure for this killer of males around the world.
