For pca71 – Transformation


WIT: It has always amazed me how weather can transform a landscape. We were up in Wyoming. Our cabin was facing a huge high-plains expanse with rolling hills and a wind farm on the horizon. It was a sunny day when suddenly enormous clouds moved across the land at a fast pace and literally transformed the landscape into an eerie, foggy scene. The dark spots you see are a bison herd.


I didn't amplify the effect in post processing but added the purplish tones. Cropped to 8 x 10 (there was nothing to the right or left - I was even tempted to go with a square crop).
