Many have asked about the Header image above, which I named 'Eerie Genny'. It was originally shot with film [taken on the shore of the Genesee River near the Univ. of Rochester]. During the darkroom development, I flashed a light above the tray. The process, known as 'solarization', produces eerie, ghostlike effects; some have mistaken this image as an infra-red photo. Some 35+ years later, I scanned and digitized the print, and did a little modern day editing, and, voila.

Cathedral Rock [Sky watch Friday]


Here are more traditional images of Sedona's Cathedral Rock. It is really an amazing group of 'rocks', and one doesn't tire of seeing at from different perspectives. The clear blue skies in these two shots reflect of what we experienced during our week in the area. Now a technical word of explanation. These images were generated by HDR processing of three bracketed shots [using the app, Dynamic Photo HDR]; it was really a fast, straightforward and simple procedure. At first glance, the upper image appears to contain the moon; actually, it was generated by lens flare, which I deliberately included. If you look further down in the image, you can see more flares.
Some people might think that the color in the bottom image was made by enhancing the hue/saturation during processing. In fact, I reduced them -- at sunset, the rock color turns a rather deep orange -- really breathtaking.
