Pico Veleta Snow Climb

Pico Veleta Snow Climb
The Shot
Last Saturday I did a workshop on Sport and Action for Bognor Regis Camera Club. I scanned some early slides to show some of my early photography. This was taken on one of my earliest bike tours and was of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and in particular this ride up Europe’s highest surfaced road to the summit of the Pico Veleta at 11,142ft. This was made especially memorable because the first snow after the summer had just fallen making for dramatic views while still accessible, just, by bike. The image is taken not far from the summit, shortly after this the cleared road ended and we had to drag the bikes though snow and clouds to get to the summit marker.

The picture was taken on the bicycle while I was cycling behind with one hand on the handlebars and one hand holding the camera. The camera was a Minolta SLR film camera using Fuji Velvia.

For processing after scan I created a false HDR by opening the TIFF file in Camera Raw using Open As in Photoshop and selecting Camera Raw from the options. Adjustments were then made to exposures to create 2 extra images at Plus2 and minus 2EV. This enabled more detail to be brought into the cyclists
Full details of the processing together with before and after images are on my Blog see Edwin Jones Photography Blog
