Funnel Cloud Over Alabama Hills

Posted by
Don Smith (California, United States) on 7 February 2015 in Landscape & Rural.

We finished up Gary Hart's Death Valley Workshop in the Alabama Hills yesterday morning. The winds aloft were creating some very cool cloud formations and I actually did a bit of jogging (first time since the knee replacement) to get this scene captured before the warm light fell off the boulders. I did my global tonal balancing in LR5, then used the Dynamic Contrast filter in onOne Perfect Photo Suite 9 to bring out the detail in the rocks but used the Large slider to fine-tune the cloud.
