From Sequoia National Park, we drove north to Kings Canyon. What a beautiful place - much less crowded than the other parks its sandwiched in between, with plenty to see and do. I got the chance to play some more with long exposures with water, as well as a little with bracketing and HDR. I mostly made use of the 14-42mm kit. We had a couple close encounters with a frisky bear at the campground, but it was after dark and I was too busy throwing rocks and shooing her away to take a picture! As usual, comments and criticism are welcome! Tear these shots apart if you feel the desire to! 1. Our first real glimpse of the canyon 2. Windy road into the canyon 3. 4. 5. Risky yoga 6. Life after fire 7. Painting with wind 8. Thugs 9. Zumwalt Meadow 10. 11. Came across a gentleman with a '50s Rolleiflex medium format camera. 12. 13. 14. HDR processing from 3 exposures. Should have shot more in hindsight. I tried really hard not to overdo the processing. This is pretty close to how I remember seeing the scene. Clouds look a little funky - I didn't have a good exposure of the sky! Doh! 15. Same evening. HDR from 3 exposures. Overdone? 16. Also HDR 17.
