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. 

Something A Little Different

What a Sky!
I took the brackets that made this shot while searching for bridges earlier in the month. I saw this crazy sky and not having much time I just rattled off a couple sets of brackets not quite sure what I was going to do with them. I didn't know if I'd do an HDR or a simple blending of two exposures, but I was hoping I'd get something. I wish I had a wider lens or had taken the time to unpack the tripod. Oh well. Processing wise I immediately went to these brackets as opposed to the bridge shots I had taken for a deadline on +The Patch - PhotogrAphy Themed CHallenge but my mindset wasn't mixing with what I wanted to do with this photo.

This photo is a little much. I tried working with a single exposure. Tried playing with a couple exposures, but the ending photo came out looking flat. So I did what I wanted to do from the beginning and just HDR it. Is it realistic? No, not really. Do I like how it turned out? I do.
