Snoqualmie Falls - Nov 2008

Snoqualmie Falls HDR, originally uploaded by Ahren D.

Fall foliage this year has been in full force. Many people I know have mentioned how colorful the season has been. Because the reds, yellows, and oranges have been hanging around longer, photographers have been able to capture the season more.

Ahren D took this on November 2, 2008. HDR combines multiple shots - with each taken at a different exposure level - into one shot that uses the best from each shot. While this technique has been around for decades, digital photography brought it into the mainstream because many DSLRs have the ability to take multiple shots of the same scene with one click.

This remains one of my favorite fall photos, especially with the dark clouds above the water. In my opinion, this photo is a great one to learn from.
