Another view of Lindy Point at sunset from my trip out to WV back in June. I have already posted two shots of this spot before, but due to an extremely busy work schedule I have not had any time for photography. And that of course means that I need to dig through my archives. I debated about this shot, considering I have two extremely similar views already posted.
At the end of the day, there were a few things I really liked about this shot that I wanted to share. First, the wider view of the viewpoint I think really presents a much nicer sense of scale. Second, although I have said before that I have not been blessed with the best skies and light on my outings this year, the light that was falling on the rocks from the setting sun was really fantastic as it created some wonderful color and texture. Third and finally, I caught an interesting lens flare in this shot. The lens flare actually turned me off initially but as I looked at I really began to like how it complemented the composition of the shot as they end up appearing like sun rays.
So, as I processed this shot, I really started liking it and wanted to share with you all. As usual, comments and critiques are welcome!
