Shades of Wilderness

By BertC  
Captured last month during an afternoon photoshoot with my two elder brothers Joe & Edwin.

The contrast of the drenched soil against the puddle and cloudy sky presented an interesting opportunity for some clicks. You will also note the lovely redish colour of the fertile soil in this particular area (i.e. outskirts of Mellieha).

Some enhancements applied to the sky in PS to add punch & drama to the scene.

Shot late in the afternoon.

Thank you for viewing and as always larger is better.

Cheers,
Bert Wink

You have developed a unique style of photography. Your low light and warmed toned images are brilliant, and this one is no exception.
