I like the view at this place on the back portion of Black Point Wildlife Drive in Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge. I’ve photographed it several times, but this image is my favorite from that spot so far.
The small pools of water aren’t always there next to the road, but on that day this one was reflecting some of our gorgeous Florida clouds and adding interest in the foreground. The grassy wetland, tree line, and distant clouds complete the image for me. I used my IR modified Olympus E-M5 II in high resolution mode and made two frames that I stitched together into a vertical 1×1 panorama.
You’ve seen this next image before. It’s the last one in this post, and it’s from about 20 feet away and two minutes later on the same day.
When I was going through photos after that trip, I liked ‘Black Point vista‘ so much that I didn’t even process the other one. Now, I still like it, but I’m very glad I came back and re-looked at ‘Pond, grass, tree-line, and clouds‘. I feel it’s a stronger image. What do you think?
Things change so it’s worth re-visiting places. While you’re there, it’s worth moving yourself and your camera around and trying several compositions. And when you get home, it’s worth taking a second look at all your images so you don’t miss a good one!
Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog. Please stay safe out there and take care of each other. And if you’re in the USA and haven’t yet voted, please do so. Then you can make some photos.
