Hiking into the Green

Hiking into the Green

Typically, I convert an image into black and white using one of Lightroom’s presets or B&W profiles as a starting place. In this case, I used the local adjustment tool and desaturated the whole image, then switched to erase mode and removed the desaturation from the foliage on the riverbank. The desaturation technique is pretty much a blunt instrument approach: it doesn’t provide the fine tonal adjustments that are available using other techniques. However, this image didn’t require a lot of fine adjustment.

This the the Dosewallips River at the point where the road was washed out several years ago. There is a trail bypassing the washout that runs above through the woods… however, when the river is low the trail along the bank is quicker and doesn’t involve climbing up a hundred feet or so.

Water Panorama

Water Panorama

This may not look like a panorama, but I was sitting on a stream side rock and took a set of overlapping photos of the river using the normal lens that was the only lens I had with me. At home, using Lightroom Classic, I stitched the images together into a “wide angle” shot … using the “Create Panorama” tool.

This is the North Fork Skokomish River (Olympic National Park) at Camp Pleasant on the North Fork Skok trail.

Marrowstone Beach View

Marrowstone Beach View

This is a series of images stitched into a panorama. Marrowstone Island is on Puget Sound north of Seattle. If you click on the image, it will be loaded larger and you will be able to see Mt Baker in the north (left side) and Mt Rainier just barely visible off the point on the right.

Here is one of the single images:
