About the Image(s)

Remnants of the Glacial Period in Wisconsin can be seen on woodland floors with small to massive boulders. In Waupaca County, these boulders are often granite. This collection of boulders is on the southwestern side of Grenlie Lake in the Skunk-Foster State Natural Area. The beauty of the late summer sun setting illuminates a portion of the woodland with the boulders revealing the interplay with light and darkness and linear and oval objects. Tech stuff: ISO 400, f/11, 1/400 sec., -2 step, manual, center weighted average metering, 31mm focal length. Initial processing via RAW then opened in PS. Did crop and linear adjustment. In LR used various presets, gradient filters, then opened in PS to do some dodging and burning. Opened in LR again and used a gradient in upper middle to dehaze, then inverted and darkened the surrounding area slightly to emphasize the contrast of light and dark and to slightly emphasize the sunlight while creating a slight out-of-focus area about the upper boulders to soften that area.

As to WHY I took this, I am compiling images for a book and a calendar on the Skunk-Foster State Natural Area and have been shooting there for several years.   Posted: 08/01/2022 14:21:25
