The WordPress Daily Prompt gives us the theme of Surreal. There are definitely some surreal moments among my collection of images!
I enjoy the process of creating something more than what is visible to the eye in my photography. Whether it is a straightforward (or not so) HDR image or combining many layers to create something otherworldly, there is something special about putting together an image that existed in my mind rather than the view through my lens.
This image comes from a beautiful, sunny June day…
As there was a bit of cloud cover, I thought it might be interesting to use it in a much darker fashion. Taking a series of shots across a range of exposures, I got the clouds dark enough to become menacing, while leaving a hint of brightness around their edges. It took a bit of manipulation, but I got it to a point that I like.
Have a wonderful day!
