I took quite a few pictures at Ponca State Park, so I thought I'd share a few of my favorites with you. I took a couple of these hoping they'd come out good. I don't usually get my wish, but I think I did with these. I took all of these in HDR and I think it really shows.
I took this one above because I was looking into the Sun. It was behind the clouds, but you could really see the outline of it in the original picture. When I reduced the size of the picture to put it on here, it kind of lost something. You can see it as that brighter spot in the middle of the clouds. I like the dramatic look of the clouds.
This picture above doesn't really look very special here for some reason. I took the picture to show how high the hill in the background really is. You don't really get to see it here. The hill goes straight up on this side and it's huge.
Even though everything is frozen solid here, I get the impression of crashing waves when I look at this last picture. I was disappointed by the cloudy day when I was there, but I think the bit of gloom they added made the pictures come out better than they would have on a sunny day.
I guess this post was all about the pictures. I might have just shared them with no writing, but I always have to say something. I hope my short descriptions helped a little bit. These pictures were kind of fun for me, even the one with the park sign. I always take a picture of the park signs. I'll talk to you later.
