Hickory Run Bridge

I haven’t shot any new landscapes in a while so over the weekend I drove down to the local State Park for a visit.

This is lovely and quite beautiful. Excellent job with the capture, comp and processing too. There are times for long, silky exposures in the water… and this is one of those times where it works beautifully. The individual cascades are small enough and just far enough away that I’m not looking to this one to see any more texture or detail than is already there.

Great entry!


Nick, as Lon says, this is a lovely scene. The mix of greens, rocks, bridge and white water are very peaceful and inviting. Looks like a great place to visit.
