Beautiful landscapes

I wanted to address a style you may have seen but only a couple of times myself – HDR, it’s a posh way of saying more colours/tones.

Cameras really struggle in certain light, especially sunsets as you maybe focusing on the sun and end up with a very bright photo or the other way and have a darker photo.  This is really inevitable so one way round is using multiple photos of the same shot but with different amounts of light.  It’s a good way of averaging out 1 amazing photo built up of several different ones.

HDR can be made to look how you want and I recently purchased some new software to help with this (you end up with a massive file) which can kill your computer (mine often locks up), but hey that’s for another time.

So I have included here a small selection of images taken in this manner (mainly taken nearby to me) and hope you like.
