Blowing in the Wind

A few weekends ago my wife and I went to Grand Marais to begin our annual time on the North Shore. In past years we've kept our 5th wheel in the campground in Aug, Sept and part of Oct. This year we started a month earlier in July.

I hadn't spent any time on the North Shore during July and a big surprise was the wild flowers, lupine, daises, orange and common hawkweed. I wanted to stop every few miles to make images.

This image was a test. I shot 16 images with different focus points from near to far and combined them with Helicon Focus. I knew this would be a challenge since there was a light breeze blowing and Helicon Focus works best with stationary objects. The first output was not very good but with the Pro version of the program you can copy from one image to the composite and that cleared it up a bit.

This is the progress to this point and I think it looks pretty good.

What do you think?

  1. I think this is a lovely shot, Roger! I am still hoping to have a piece of your art in my collection soon.
    Hope you are well and happy. Skip a stone in Lake Superior for me!
