HDR in Snow Canyon State Park, Utah

During our weekend trip to St. George, we spent Saturday indoors because it was cold and rainy; even terrential at times. But on Sunday before heading back home, the rain stopped and the temperature was just right for a hike in Snow Canyon State Park. It was a beautiful day, and I thought I would try taking some HDR photos.

So at various points along the trail, I would stop, adjust the exposure stops to -2 and +2, hold the camera really steady, and snap the three pictures needed to later compile an HDR photo. While not all of them came out good, here are the two that I thought came out best.

If you’ve ever been to Snow Canyon State Park in St. George, which trail is your favorite? We despise the Three Ponds trail. Hiking through sand to see what ended up being Three mud puddles was not worth the effort. But the scenery along the trail was nice. 🙂

    1. Thanks. I agree – there are many out there that are over-processed, and I can see how easy it is to over-process them. Glad you liked how these came out.
