The Wyoming Basins and their stark beauty beckon to my inner landscape photographer. These vast spaces often feature turbulent skies such as this, with the lighting changing by the minute. It sort of amazes me that we don't see more photographers taking advantage, maybe the wind chases em' away. ;-)
Image Notes: Two manually blended handheld frames, one at -1/3 EV for the foreground and one at -2 EV for sky. I find that the typical 7-shot HDR blends tend to butcher skies like this and so nearly always default to hand-blending or ND Grads if I want to preserve cloud detail like I did here.
