Passing Clouds and Moving Shadows Across the Hillsides of Wind Cave National Park

Passing Clouds and Moving Shadows Across the Hillsides of Wind Cave National Park

This was one of the trails I'd walked a week prior on an overcast day with off and on light rain. Obviously the far off distant views weren't there that day, so I took advantage of what amounted to a flex day in my vacation travels to revisit Wind Cave National Park and walk some trails I'd seen from other photographers. The Rankin Ridge Nature Trail was the top of my list during those few morning hours I had. This was from an clearing on the trail with a view looking to the south. I decided to angle my Nikon SLR camera slightly downward to better bring out a sense of depth and add a more sweeping view as one looked across the rolling hillsides of this national park. I finished up post-processing work in Capture NX2 by adding a few CEP filters (Low Key, Polarization and Graduated Neutral Density) for the final image.
