On our hike back to the car from the Heron Pond swamp, Susan pointed out these tree roots on the bank of the Cache River. This HDR image was processed from five, one stop brackets in Nik HDR Efex using a custom preset I made for landscapes.
Starting with the color shot, this monochrome was processed in Nik Silver Efex Pro.
