If backroads have backroads, this is it. Deep in the trees near Table Rock lake in the Missouri Ozarks, this road loops around an area of forest before returning to the ‘main’ backroad. This is an HDR taken last Saturday, as I visited my brother and nephew. Did you ever make a photo that looks really good when viewed at a large size, but where the WOW factor seems to plummet rapidly as the size shrinks just a little? That’s what I’m thinking here, and it is a mystery to me. We have had a lot of fun over the years along this road, so I’m glad to have a good image to remember it by.
While it might seem counterintuitive, a rainy overcast day can really make colors pop. This was a favorite spot we found in Vermont, I visited it twice. The first day was rainy and I jumped out of the car for a few quick hand held frames. The second day was dry, and I came back with a tripod and took some time…but as it turns out I prefer the rainy day images. The light is what really matters.
