The snow is (almost) gone

May 11, 2011

Well, well…look who is back!

Winter is gone and we are in full ”spring” mode here in the Dolomites. Lots of flowers are right now blooming and the snow can only be found over 2000 mt of altitude. Still, I would like to post some pictures taken during the past winter. To be honest, the winter was a short one: in January and February we had almost every day blue sky and no fresh snow.

Passing Storm

Passing Storm - Canon 5D, 24-105 f/4 L, 105mm@f/11, 0.4s, ISO 100. This is a pano from 4 different vertical shots.

The image featured in this post was taken back in November 2010. It was taken at sunset from Mt Bondone looking westwards towards the Brenta Group. At the time there was a storm passing over the peaks that was side-lit by the setting sun.

The final image is the result of stitching  together4 different frames. The process is not that automated as I thought. Although while  processing the raw images I tried to keep the white balance similar for all the frames in the end the final result was not that good. I had to manually correct each single channel for the different frames to get to this.
