Today’s Photo Of The Day is “The Wave in Black and White” by Jeff Sullivan. Location: Arizona.
“Striated layers of Navajo sandstone undulate under erosive forces, gradually uncovering rock formed in the Jurassic Period, 150 to 190 million years ago,” describes Sullivan.
“Visiting the Wave requires a cross-country hike of over 3 miles from the Wire Pass Trailhead on House Rock Road, near Kanab, Utah. Only 20 hiking permits, awarded by lottery, are issued for each day by the Bureau of Land Management.
“For maximum control over contrast and detail, three exposures were captured one stop apart. After adjustment in Adobe Lightroom, a High Dynamic Range (HDR) master was created in Photomatix. That result was converted to black and white in Silver Efex 2. A single 14mm field of view was insufficient to capture this composition top to bottom. To adequately capture the complete curves in the foreground, this is a vertical panorama stitching together several overlapping 14mm landscape orientation (horizontal) HDR-processed images.”
