This is a photo that I love, an HDR image (which is a type of photograph that I’m really enjoying learning how to make). I found this statue in a graveyard in Bayfield, CO, on a beautiful day. I had just finished a wonderful infant photo session and was all hyped up, saw the graveyard as I was driving home and couldn’t resist stopping. No idea how old the statue was, or how long it had been broken like it is, but there were graves that I saw dated back to the late 1800’s. I also saw a few gravestones labelled simply “unknown”. I may post a photo of them in the future, I couldn’t imagine spending eternity as an “unknown”.
I’m taking several ideas from Trey Ratcliff’s blog, found here. I really admire his work. He did much to develop HDR as a type of photography. I will not only show HDR here, because I take many different types of images. I plan to show my landscapes, portraits, HDR and fine art images here. Enjoy them all!
