Dogwood52: week 2: Traditional Landscape

This is not so traditional. I had originally planned to bike to Little Switzerland, but not only it was hectic at work, also the weather had been chaotic. This was the only evening it wasn’t raining and windy, and I didn’t wear adequate clothes to step into the tracks (covered with a layer of mud and another layer of water on top).

I decided to select this photo, not because I had no real choice, but because after fiddling with bracketing and HDR processing, it did really feel my state of mind when I managed to see the stars after several days of fog, wind and rain.

The color could have been a candidate for week 3 challenge, but I have something else in mind 😉 My camera aperture was locked in 1.4 as the aperture ring was blocked and I did not dare to fix it in the darkness and humidity.
