I spent a few days camping in the eastern Columbia River Gorge this past weekend; it is particularly lovely in late April/early May. Balsamroot is a fun plant to shoot a “bouquet with a background.”
Photography in the Columbia Hills is typically a constant battle with the wind, so I often find myself in a ravine hoping for a little protection.
I liked this image redder than the camera’s auto white balance chose. Too much?? As always, any and all feedback is appreciated.
Nikon 12.0-24.0 mm f/4.0 at 12 mm (18mm equiv.)
1/30 and 1/60 at f/16 and ISO 100
Blend of three images for DOF
After staring at this for awhile I went back and tweaked it a bit, maybe answering my own question; I think I prefer this one with a little less red.
