Exit – Scorpion Gulch

This morning’s post is another shot of the interior of the old homesite called Scorpion Gulch, located at the entrance to South Mountain Park in Phoenix, Arizona. This shot was taken right after a winter storm front had moved through, so the clouds were just starting to break up.

I love how the HDR process revealed the deep cracks in the walls to the right, along with the details in the floor.

HDR created from seven bracketed photos processed in Photomatix v4. Post-processing in Topaz Adjust / DeNoise with Paintshop Photo Pro X3.

Short post this morning, gotta head to work!



  1. I saw this link via #photog hashtag on Twitter. I’ve been peeking at a lot more HDR…I like it though I do not create it. I’ve used Topaz, but not with actual bracketed photographs, only to add effects to individual ones.

    This is really cool, I like the texture.

    • Thanks, Trudy! I also use Topaz on single-exposures, and I really like the way it helps reveal details that would otherwise be hidden. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
