Photo of the Week

Many residents are awake and aware of Canyon Lake’s stunning sunsets, but the ones who are up to see a sunrise like this one are truly the lucky ones. This week, Mike Clary captured this exquisite scene through his high dynamic range photography (HDR), which means his camera took seven individual images with exposures ranging from three stops under to three stops over exposed. “Other than lowering the overall exposure for the final image to darken the reds and yellows, this is pretty much how it looked to me at 6:30 this morning,” he writes. “I really loved the amount of yellow in the sky in contrast with the reds. The clouds were vibrant and the jet contrails always add punch.”
