Mountain Sunset

We just returned from our summer vacation to the Ozark mountains in Arkansas. What a wonderful time we had. This was the first time my three boys and my wife have been to Arkansas, so they were in awe of the mountains and the views of the valleys. The weather was so much cooler than we are normally accustomed to in Houston, Texas and the scenery was absolutely beautiful. I vacationed in the same place several times as a child and it was very interesting to return to these same places as an adult. We stayed in a log cabin on the top of Mount Nebo and drove to several other mountain state parks during a week long stay.

Since I first purchased my Canon 40D DSLR camera back in November of 2007 I've been waiting for a change to capture a mountain sunset. Well, I got my change on this trip. In fact I went a little overboard with the number of sunset images I captured. But then again its digital and doesn't cost anything except a little disk space.

Most of the sunset images I took were processed as High Dynamic Range (HDR) images which allow you a display a much broader range of colors and tones than can be captured in a single photographic image.
