This weekend I rode my bicycle up the first parts of Rist Canyon. On the way down, rain sprinkles and clouds greeted me as I exited the canyon. I took a photo of the sky, and this became my favorite image of the week.

Digital Darkroom. For this image, I made my typical adjustments- increased contrast, highlights, and texture; lowered shadows. I then applied a graduated filter over the sky, adding more of the same, as well as some dehaze. I finished by raising the overall exposure by half a stop.
WIRR stands for Weekly Image Rich Ruh. This regular feature on Das Has von Ruh will show and describe my favorite photo created during this weekly period. My weeks start on Mondays, as does the WIRR. I’m hoping to include commentary on the story, the setting, the specs, or the sentiments, depending on the circumstances.
