Hiking Surprise (Photocentric)

I hope those of you who had a 3 day weekend enjoyed it. I took the time to get out and hike some. The first trail we hit didn't look very promising, until we rounded a bend and this came into view. I should have gone back to the car to grab the seldom used tripod that I had in there, but didn't want to hold up the rest of the group so did my best hand-held shot.

So that's the first "problem" with this shot. The second problem I had was that it was washed out and pretty dull looking color wise. Like a previous shot I took, I decided to try and HDR it to add a little punch to it. It turned out pretty good, I think. I really enjoy shooting panoramic shots, but find them a little disappointing when viewing them because they're restricted by my puny 22 inch monitor.

When I first saw the house my thought was they were in a great place; sandwiched between rolling hills with the coast not far. Then I thought of the recent tsunami scare, and thought differently.
