Floating Through the Temple While in the north of India, I visited this Hindu temple. It was beautiful and decadent inside. I can't even imagine what it used to look like back in the day. The walls supposedly had inlaid jewels and other precious stones. Despite time, it is still impressive.I had set up for a normal multi-exposure shot, but then this Muslim woman came floating through the room, so I quickly made some adjustments and grabbed a quick single-exposure HDR.- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.
Or maybe this is better described as the main side. When we stopped here in Monaco, we had an uber drop us off. He asked where we wanted to be dropped off, and I just said, “The Harbor where all the boats are.” Then he told me there were two of them, and I had no idea. I picked the wrong one… I picked the one that is more boring and there's really not much around it. I MEANT to go to this part… but, in the good news category, it gave me an excuse to climb this mini-mountain to get this shot right after dinner.

The Golden Gate Bridge at Dusk I had spent the previous night up in Napa, visiting my mom and grandmother. This was a long day with a stop in Petaluma to see Leo's operation, a fast hike through the Muir Woods, and then a visit to the Golden Gate Bridge to catch its majesty at sunset.I'm sure locals know this spot very well, but I found it thanks to Google Earth. I knew it would be a cool spot, but driving to these spots is always a bit sketchy when you have never been there before. It appeared to be a simple jog off Highway 1, and it actually was. It's nice when something that looks easy ends up actually being easy! This isn't usually the case. Even better, the wind wasn't howling a mile a minute, which I think can happen around here if you don't watch out!After I took this, I could hardly wait to get back home to process the final image. I don't know about y'all, but I find the post-processing just as fun as the actual shooting... I really get a kick out of it!- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.
