Cheltenham Badlands revisited
« on: May 25, 2014, 09:58:31 PM »

Kerry Little and I were on-site well before sunrise this morning at this very unique place in southern Ontario. Light and shadow and eroded undulations of clay-ey shale makes this small part of the Niagara Escarpment a creative place for photography - provided you get there early enough to avoid the crowds and catch the dramatic light (both predawn and just after sunrise). It is a very heavily used/abused area making it rather difficult to avoid the tread marks of hundreds of feet. Careful composition and the healing adjustment brush help.

Enjoy.

#4 is my favourite, in line with #1, but I prefer the more squarish format.

Very nice gallery, I like them all but my preference - if I had to choose - would be for image #4.

Number 2 for me, simple but powerful lines and shapes.

Superb. Just my cup of tea. I think I like 1 best, I also love trees.

Those are wonderful! Very gentle tones and great details.

I like No.4 very much because of the square and it's balance.
