Orange Moss Boardwalk

Orange Moss Boardwalk

My November 2012 Milford Track experience yielded many excellent images, including this one taken during my first full day on the track. I'd come to a promising looking side trial, so I shed my pack, grabbed my tripod, and then headed down the dirt trail until it turned into this curving boardwalk. I have a thing for paths, lines and curves, and am grow to them photographically; this was no exception. I set up my tripod on the boardwalk so I would not disturb or harm the beautiful vegetation below. The overcast sky actually helped accentuate the color of the vegetation, both the green and the orange. I used HDR to craft this image, as the dynamic difference between the vegetation and sky was too great, and I wanted detail in both. This approach also helped bring out the richness of the orange, which is exactly how I remember it.
