Hot off the Glenwood Wave

What a great few days we have had here in Colorado. Peak flows on the Colorado River with great conditions on the Glenwood Wave and Big Sur.

I just wanted to share this unique image from the last few days.
The wave was at 22,000ish CFS. I’ll post up the Big Sur images soon for those of you that were there on Monday.

Get out there now, It is good!



Whole story:

Peter,

Very cool work here. I read about how the image was created which was quite cool. The way that you bumped the saturation of the street lights on the water gives a very nice effect.

Thanks Ben,

The red glow is actually from the Conoco across the bridge. I added a bit of contrast but much saturation. I was really surprised to see how much glow a gas station could provide.

I'm glad you all like it?



Any one interested in night paddling for future images? I've got a few more ideas to try.
