Granite Dells in Prescott, AZ


Granite Dells in Prescott, AZ, originally uploaded by EvanGearing.
A few months ago, my wife and I decided to take a trip to Prescott, AZ. We had never been before but heard it was a nice place. We based that on trips to Flagstaff many years ago and friends told us Prescott was quite similar. We loved the time we spent in Flagstaff and we enjoyed Prescott just as much. It's a great all-American town. There is some beautiful scenery to take in while you are there. Just outside of Prescott is an area called the "Granite Dells". It's a photographers oasis!

Unfortunately I didn't have too much time to get the perfect shot, but I had time to get a few decent ones. This is one of them. It's an HDR shot from one raw converted into three tiffs at -2, 0 and +2 exp. comp, merged in Photomatix and a little post processing in Photoshop.

One more thing... While we were there we found a nice art gallery called the "Ian Russell Gallery" right off the town square and it happened to be the place where Rich Charpentier works! He is an amazing photographer and has an excellent portfolio of HDR work. He has a blog called "The Airstream Chronicles" and it has a great deal of information on photography. His gallery in Prescott is quite impressive also. I recommend it if you are ever in the area.
