Here is the HDR photo from the dried out area of Hungryland’s Natural Preserve. Being there was a lot more captivating than this actual photo. I honestly didn’t have much time to compose my shot or else I would have had something a little more interesting. Oh well… there’s always a next time, plus this sunset wasn’t doing it for me anyways.
My plan for the second visit to this area is to shoot from a lower perspective and get more of the dried soil in the foreground. I might even try to find an old snail shell and use it as a foreground subject. Hopefully when I do re-shoot it’ll be more cloudy to add some color and atmosphere to the scene.
