End Of The Path, Valley Park Trail

Piled at the end of a path along the Meramec River sits this precarious stack of large concrete blocks.  The scale isn't evident here, but they are large enough to require a crane to move them.  Curiously, they don't seem to match any structures nearby.  This monochrome was created in Nik Silver Efex pro, applying a sharp blue filter.

The color picture upon which the comes from five one stop brackets merged in Nik HDR Efex Pro, followed by levels adjustments in Photoshop CS5 and finally cropped in Lightroom 3.3.
