One of the things I’ve noticed while touring the local back roads here is a tradition of land owners creating family cemeteries. This one sits at the edge of a farm field southwest of Wilmington.
I used an HDR software I like to take what was a rather ordinary photograph of this burial ground and make it different.
On the same trip I walked into the Green Swamp looking for a misty landscape. Instead I came across these leaves turning gold and red as if it were fall. The colors on the forest floor made it even more interesting.
Finally, a portrait of a lady, a blonde and a resident of Shackleford Island off the coast of Beaufort, North Carolina. Part of the wild pony herd there this animal, and the others around here, were very docile creatures. After a nice pose we both went off to other pursuits.
Travel and make photographs - they are things I should do as often as I possibly can. It’s the only way to get better.
