So I’ve been experimenting with HDR photographs, and the images on the left show a comparison. The top image is an enhanced illustration of “Montezuma’s Castle,” a Native-American habitat near Camp Verde, Arizona, built in about 1250. The bottom image is the original photograph. How do you think they compare? I’m currently using the trial version of this software… is it worth $99 to register?
After Montezuma’s Castle, we drove out to Petrified Forest and Painted Desert. A single 28-mile drive takes you through both parks. They were certainly worth the trip. Lots of neat rock formations and many petroglyphs.
Next we headed out to Meteor Crater, near Winslow, Arizona. The site was impressive. We took lots of pictures. Finally, we made our way to Flagstaff to spend the night. Our hotel chain has three locations in town, and we found the other two LOOOONG before we got to the correct hotel.
