One Tree Hill HDR Sunset

One Tree Hill HDR Sunset, originally uploaded by nzcjs.
I'd wanted to get to the top of Mount Wellington, but time wasn't on my side. All the way to Panmure the sky looked glorious, but there was nowhere to stop. I was convinced that atop Mount Wellington I'd get spectacular views of the sun setting and the clouds. It wasn't to be.

Close to Sacred Heart College though I could stop and get a shot or two. The sun's rays were quite special and this 9 shot HDR image processed in Photomatix Pro highlights them reasonably well. Again, typically, I forgot the tripod ... desperate to travel light, but also plain late leaving home! Thankfully I could rest the camera on the trig point so the images line up pretty well.

More of my HDR shots are here, and if you want to know more about HDR I'd suggest you have a squiz here.


  1. cool...you are at the right time at the right place to capture this shots

  2. It didn't seem so at the time as I missed so many opportunities on the journey. The clouds were truely magnificent last night though.
