Running... Again?

  If you know me you know there was a time about 10 years ago or so where I was running. A lot. At least 5 days a week and at least 5 miles a run. I wasn’t training, I wasn’t preparing for a race or a marathon. I just found myself enjoying the time spent running. I wasn’t obsessed with numbers, but I kept track of them all and liked seeing improvements in time and distances. It was good physical health and mental health. Then I tweaked my knee. Not bad enough that I couldn’t walk on it, just a tweak that told me I needed to back off of running for a little bit. So I decided on 2 weeks. At the end of 2 weeks I aborted a run very early as the pain was still there. 2 weeks became 3, became a month, became 5 years.

I didn't want to post this shot. Not because I didn't like it, I do, but it's the third or fourth shot from the same outing. The darn clouds give it away! I liked this shot because the hillside foliage is nicely illuminated, in the background you can see the mists hugging the coast, and the sun trail on the ocean. This was a seven shot HDR shot... or composition. I'm not sure if "shot" is the right word for a photo like this that's made up of seven other photos.

In terms of processing I didn't do that much. It came out of Photomatix looking pretty good and instead of my usual Topaz Labs Adjust to Detail, to Aperture workflow I normally do, I only used Detail to sharpen things up a bit then played with curves back in Aperture.
