I love storm light. On our first trip to Rocky Mountain National Park, we got our share of storms. As we hiked up to the falls, we could see this storm forming just a few miles away. By the time we got down to our car the storm was almost upon us.
This image required manual blending because of the extreme range of light. The clouds were lit by the sun, and the storm clouds and foreground were completely in shade. I used our iHDR manual Blending workflow to keep the image looking natural. I used the river as a leading line.
