Day 412 - Neither rain nor hail...

ISO 100, 24mm, f/11, 1/8 sec.

nor sleet nor snow will make me forget that spring is just around the corner.

Our weather was a complete mixed bag today not to mention the flipping cold. We had sun, rain, hail and snow.

I dug deep into the archives to take me to a sunnier, warmer day.

I took this photo on March 14, 2010. The state capitol is beautiful when the cherry trees are in full bloom.

This image of the capitol was a slightly underexposed image that I tweaked in Lightroom tonight. I was quite pleased the results especially when I compared it to the HDR photo below.

ISO 100, 24mm, f/11, HDR 0.5, 1/8, 1/30 sec.

When I took the image last year, I bracketed the photos so that I could run it through an HDR filter. This was my finished product.


  1. Think I like the top photo the best. Both great photos with beautiful colors

  2. I think I like the top one as well, but I am not sure why. Spring really is coming up fast and I can't wait. Thanks for the reminder. Really gorgeous shot!

  3. Gorgeous!!! I think the top photo has a little less noise in it. Both are lovely.

  4. I like the top one better also, there seems to be more/better details in it.
    Yay for Spring!
