Everglades National Park
While driving the main road in Everglades National Park, I saw this scene unfolding and quickly pulled over and hiked through sawgrass and knee deep water to get to the perfect spot to take this photograph. A storm cloud had just passed overhead and it was still raining where I was standing while taking the many overlapping images to create this panorama.
Several sequential overlapping images were taken of the Everglades scene. Each image was then seamlessly blended together in Photoshop using layers and masks all while keeping the integrity of the scene as it was observed. Color was then adjusted, dodging and burning, contrast and sharpening to optimize the raw image. Panorama was created because artistically, a single frame is not enough for me to tell a more complete visual story of the subjects photographed.
