Bottom Lake (6 am)
Yesterday's attempt failed miserably as I was so tired and just couldn't leave the cosiness of my bed. Today, however, I faired a bit better.
At last I reached the bottom lake at the Botanical Gardens and thought this could be the place for the first shot. The water was very still and the clouds looked like an HDR shot could work. This is the image at the start of this post. A five shot HDR processed with default settings in Photomatix Pro. (I didn't have time to do anything else and it looked pretty good. Problems at work meant I had to head off to the office).
After taking my five shots for the HDR image I was looking at the water and noticed a few insects causing the odd ripple. Then I started to get wet! Typical Paul D Smart! Jinxed by the British project with British weather!
Oh, on the way home I noticed Santa, rather worse for wear. Somewhat deflated you might say :-)
