Smoky Hill Cemetery
Sunset through the trees at the Smoky Hill Cemetery. HDR processing plus a drop in the color temperature that really brings out the blue in the tree shadows. Related shots in the Fall Color 2012 set.

Sunset Hill
If I were to choose a picture of the year, it would be this one. The view is from Sunset Hill in Kansas City. It’s part of a set I took with my new full-frame DSLR: First Canon 5D Mk II Shots.
