December 8, 2014 — Point Reyes National Seashore, California
I came across this while verifying my archives a few weeks ago. I marked it to remind me to come back to it and come back to it I did. The original shot was fodder for what you see here: not what the camera saw, but what I saw.
I was quite happy with it when I worked on it last night — but this morning I decided it needed a bit more finessing. Moral: sleep on it.
It got a good reaction on Instagram — @amagaphoto if you’re interested — and now we’ll see what you think.
