Water's edge

Click here to view at 1000 pixels wide

The day was hot and humid ... not a human being within twenty miles. The peace and quiet were profound. This was a fairly easy shot to get -- the landscape did most of the work! The only trick is to get down low to the ground, which makes the world truncate (meaning, to make the camera juxtapose the very-near and the very-far. The effect is dramatic, and made more so by some in-computer work later. I saturated the colors and sharpened the shot, after resizing it to 1000 pixels wide. This image is also compressed to 90% on the jpg quality, to make it a more economical up/download. Photo by Jade, 2009.
