Sometimes you have to get out of the city to get some real good urban decay! We went to explore an abandoned radar station in the Laurentians North of Montreal. The station is located at the summit of the highest hill in the area, giving it a magnificent vantage point over the surrounding lakes and forested hills.

All images are made from successively lighter and lighter exposures since I wanted to capture the indoor/outdoor thing since it was such a glorious with a nice cloudy sky. I used HDR software to perform the merger. Because it was very windy, I chose the sky from one of the exposure, processed it and masked it over the resulting HDR image.

Because of the very large dynamic range involved, it took from 7 to 11 exposures depending on the image.

The place is certainly worth the detour and I plan on returning in the fall to capture the autumn colors for which the region is so well-known for.

I inserted a gallery of all images produced that day including a few that have been previously published.

Equipment: Canon DSLR 5D Mk II, Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L lens, Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS lens
