I hiked to this waterfall in the Kennebec Highlands on snowshoes today. Layers of ice had built up from the spray, so I was able to climb up what in the warmer part of the year is an actual waterfall. The combination of icicles and other strange shapes, together with the flowing water, made for a series of interesting images. It was a good afternoon!
Inside, I’ve been learning another Raw image processor: Capture One Pro. Its excellent raw processing algorithm, powerful set of tools (including adjustment layers with opacity adjustment) and highly customizable interface make it a great complement to Lightroom and DxO Photo Lab. I’ve been developing a workflow that takes advantage of the strengths of all three. Then there’s Photoshop. Something to do when the temperature is below 10 degrees and the windchill below zero.
