DP2Merrill in Nevada
4 months ago

Husband and I departed Las Vegas this afternoon for several days in and around Valley of Fire. When we reached the Lake Mead area, it was HOT, over 100 degrees F. So my plans for a hike around Redstone Dunes Trail, which is along Northshore Rd. were very abbreviated. But still, gorgeous red rock scenery (and other colors) everywhere. Tomorrow into Valley of Fire itself, hopefully with an early start to beat the heat. I'm uploading a few DP2Merrill files onto the flickr link below. The DP2Merrill photos are IMHO quite spectacularly detailed. I shot ISO 100 +.3EV eval metering auto wb on monopod, no polarizer; in SPP5.4 I changed the white balance to SUNLIGHT wb, using standard colormode. I MAY go straight ISO100 tomorrow for starters rather than with +.3EV, but today the extra EV didn't really blow out detail.

Best regards, Sandy
