Honey Island Swamp, Sliddel, Louisiana

Project Description

What is exciting or interesting to you about your photo(s)? I like the different perspective of a great blue sky background, the thick copping of trees casting shadows and reflection on the slightly rippled swamp. What are you most proud of? The image has a slightly grainy look that adds to the spooky feel of being in the swamp. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Time of the day was important to achieve the light reflection. A trick that I found was to throw something small (that will not cause damage to the environment) into the water about a third of the frame to cause the ripple which gives a nice effect to the light reflection.
