Sunset at Gator Hole Lake Jonathan Dickinson State Park

Feb 24, 2012 | Landscapes & Scenery

My HDR photos are created by using Photomatix Pro HDR software. I use Luminar NEO for photo editing. I also use Topaz Software for noise removal and sharpening. Affiliate links provided to support site.

I had the luxury of hiking with a shutterbug friend, Chris Evans from foottraxphotography.com, who showed me this little lake at Jonathan Dickinson State Park, called Gator Hole Lake. That evening the colors just exploded after the sun dropped below the horizon. This is a three image panoramic which I stitched in Photoshop then tone mapped in Photomatix Pro for a little color pop.
