Early evening photos often suffer dynamic range issues. The range of brightnesses that camera sensors can digitize is usually much smaller than the range our eyes can perceive. Combining multiple exposures of a scene into a High Dynamic Range image can be helpful, but all too often I find the results hyperrealistic and divorced from the actual scene. I’m much more interested in making only small tweaks to images to capture natural scenes as I perceive them.This fascinating early Summer scene in Glacier National Park provided an interesting opportunity to do so. Just before sunset, I looked northwest, across and above Lake McDonald towards Stanton Mountain and Mount Vaught. Properly exposing the sky left the mountain in full silhouette save for the dwindling late season snow which textures the mountains. Stanton Mountain in particular seems to grow out of the dim Earthly evening towards the remaining light in the sky. Next time I’ll have to return even later in the evening for even more colorful drama.
