Monument Rocks – Up Close
Another set of brackets from the trip to Monument Park. Driving up we knew that we were going to arrive either just shortly after the rain had ceased or while it was still occurring. I was trying to capture as many different shots as I could I can’t tell you for sure whether it was raining or not with certainty but I’m pretty sure it was still sprinkling. This made for some pretty muddy conditions but at the time I didn’t even think about how it would affect the outcome of our shots. I remember thinking that I wouldn’t like the muddy wet conditions and it would diminish the look I was expecting to get. Well, now that I have had a chance to process a few of the images, I have no doubt the the wet reflections have added to the image quite substantially (in my opinion). Not only does it provide a little foreground filler but is also amplifies the light reflected off the ground that I know would not be as bright without the rain. It’s always nice to get lucky and have these conditions presented to you.
