Return to Busch by BradLeeDaleNorth Return to Busch by BradLeeDaleNorth
It had been quite some time since I went out and shot at my favorite location, Busch Wildlife. After a trip out west to Yosemite it felt really good to get back out there and wander around. Took me a while to shake the rust off but as the day got later and the light got lower, I found myself back in one of my favorite fields in the area.

I tried out many different dof and compositional ideas before this, standing at a right angle to the setting sun. The warm, strong side light is always something great to work with but the sky in that direction had little to no interest. As the sun became partially obscured by cloud cover I found these taller, defiant plants to be catching a wonderful glow. This in turn drove my composition, and compelled me to use this sporadic cluster to anchor the somewhat chaotic sky. It was definitely a great day back at Busch and it had me excited to be home.

Much thanks Greg! I felt a bit rusty but in the end I was pleased with this one the most.

Fantastic composition and i really appreciate your writing. Is it 2 different exposures blended ? I ask that because there is no movement in the grass, no blurry... and it's the evening so it's hard to have a high shutter speed. There was no wind at all or do you have a technique ?

Thank you much! It is two different exposures blended, but I waited for the wind to die down.

Right on with the glow on the taller plants. So crisp and a surreal atmosphere.

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I wasn't sure if the surreal look would be well received.
