This month’s wallpaper image was taken one evening in Canmore, in the Alberta Rocky Mountains. I was away for a few days on my own to get some quiet and work on some writing. I couldn’t resist the large, almost full moon that night and the clean, crisp mountain air so I found a great spot for a nighttime HDR image along the river. I took five exposures ranging from 8 seconds to almost 3 minutes, using my iPhone as a timer. I wanted to get just a hint of detail in the mountain and homes on the hill, as well as retain all the colour and detail in the lights and the sky. You can see the stars are just starting to leave small trails at that length of time, which is perfect!
Hope you enjoy this image as much as I enjoyed creating it!
