I Took a Traveled Path That Led Me to a Wilderness of Adventures (Congaree National Park)

I Took a Traveled Path That Led Me to a Wilderness of Adventures (Congaree National Park)

An iconic setting and image idea I’d seen from many photographers before heading out to Congaree National Park. As I’d had a chance to explore some of the wilderness area the day prior and more rains from a storm front coming through soon that afternoon, I had to focus my time. I decided to enjoy what amounted to a leisurely stroll along the Boardwalk Loop Trail! I stopped at different points, here and there, taking in either the sounds or sights present. With this point, I had a look down more of a straight away portion of the raised boardwalk with the cypress trees on both sides and the floodplain waters still present. I later worked with control points and color control points in Capture NX2 to bring out the contrast, saturation and brightness I wanted. I then added a Foliage and Sunshine CEP filter to give that little bit extra for the final image.
