Winter on the Tidal Marsh (Little River)

Another shot of the Little River Marsh at Rachel Carson NWR, this one catching the curve of the stream headed out toward the sea in the distance. The foreground is what happens when a mix of sea water and fresh covers marsh which is already covered in snow. The textures there, and the mix of browns against the snowy background, adds interest to the foreground and balances the curve of the river and the weight of that big blue winter sky.

Sony DSC H50 at 31mm equivalent. F4.5 @ 1/2000 @ ISO 100. Programmed auto with –.7EV exposure compensation.

Recovery in Lightroom for the snow highlights. Blackpoint to the right. Added Clarity and Vibrance. Sharpen Landscape preset.

From Rachel Carson NWR Seasons.
