Brandywine Creek II by BradLeeDaleNorth Brandywine Creek II by BradLeeDaleNorth
Such a great find along our excursion through Cuyahoga Valley National Park. The feeling of soft cold sandstone against your feet is a wonderful experience. If you stand still, schools of minnows can be felt brushing your ankles and heels as they swim upstream, tickling as they pass. Definitely a great afternoon spent thoroughly enjoying the outdoors.

Manual blend of three exposures.

Thank you so much! I used a slightly overexposed shot with a layer mask to pull out that detail below the ledge. I appreciate the comment!

I used to employ HDR on my images but have since decided it's not the look for me. Great shot though!

Thank you Pete! It definitely was a great place. At the time I was dating a girl that lived in New York while I was in Missouri. We found this area in Ohio to be a great halfway point for us to meet. Such an awesome trip.

good idea for a date to go on a photo-excursion ;)
how did it turn out?
as long as the girl is not turned off by all that photo equipment crap... some girls find it quite strange and confusing when i mount the tripod and pull out all my filter stuff :P

nice capture for sure mate ;)

She actually didn't mind it, and that was the coolest part. She held my gear bag most of the time and actually enjoyed it. She said it felt like she was my assistant and she enjoyed seeing me in my element and attempting to view the landscapes through my eyes. It was still a very new relationship so who knows. Maybe eventually she would have gotten tired of it. :)
