Forest in Mammoth Cave National Park

Forest in Mammoth Cave National Park

One has to seek out the reality around
For many things aren't what they seem
People pretend or hide, sometimes even avoid entanglements
But the trees and nature are what they are
There's a simplicity in their appeal
From the sun shining through the leafage above
to the dirt and grasses we walk through on life expedition.

Another work of short poetry or prose to complement the image captured one afternoon in Mammoth Cave National Park while walking under trees along the Turnhole Bend Nature Trail.

As for the image captured, I was able to bring out a decent look for the NEF/RAW image in Capture NX2. It was then that I recalled downloading the newest version of Aurora HDR 2019 and tried that out with the NEF image. That definitely allowed me to work with a better set of colors in an image! I then exported a TIFF image to Capture NX2 to do some initial work with color control points in adjusting saturation, brightness and contrast. I finished up the image by adding a Foliage and Polarization CEP filter for the final image seen.
