It was overcast most of the night, but the sun broke through as it was getting near the horizon, and I put myself in position to try and nail a couple of shots with the very cool cloud layer. Yes, they are HDR.
I tried to tell a story of the scene, one chapter was dedicated to capturing the landscape.
And one chapter for the skyscape.
Ahh, I can't wait till I can afford a good wide angle lens.
If anyone is curious about metadata, I'll post on request.
