Rock Bridge State Park

The above photo is a composite of two photos. They were of the exact same image and taken within milliseconds of one another, but exposed differently. This was done so that both the sky and the ground would be exposed as desired. The technique of combining multiple photos to display a higher range of captured light is called, HDR, or High Dynamic Range.

The spiderwebs are what caught my eye for this photo. A simple picture, but this took a bit of time to do. Camera on tripod, check. External flash connected to camera via off camera flash cord, check. Flash hanging from tree branch via gorilla tripod, check. After all that, it was a matter of timing as the wind was blowing the nearly four foot blade of grass back and forth. The sunset added a nice touch.
