Hungryland Slough Florida Dried Wetlands

Feb 10, 2011 | Wetlands & Everglades

My HDR photos are created by using Photomatix Pro HDR software. I use Luminar NEO for photo editing. I also use Topaz Software for noise removal and sharpening. Affiliate links provided to support site.

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.
