This series includes 4 views of the back marsh at Rocky Neck State Park in Connecticut.
These photos were shot at mid-day, in direct and harsh sun light. In order to capture the clouds and blue sky without washing out the marsh grasses or water reflections ND Grad # 4 filters were used. This also softened the overall feel of the images.
There was a purely technical reason for shooting this late in the day with filters. I like to sleep in.
