Recently we visited Cypress Grove Park here in Jackson, TN. It's gorgeous inside the park, which is actually a boardwalk trail that winds deep into the forest. It's very peaceful and serene, and I was able to get some beautiful photos. Unfortunately, because of the darkness, the camera doesn't make the best pictures. So these require quite a bit of editing before publishing.
I love the photo above, as it gives a glimpse of the sunlight coming in through the trees. But of course, I thought it needed more color. This is one of those scenes which would look wonderful if it would really glow from the sunlight. So....I did a bit of editing, and this is how the photo looks now:
Full of rich color, an inviting scene has been created for the viewer. I decided to take things one step farther and add some words of inspiration:
It reads: BE STILL in the darkness and I will LIGHT your way. This gorgeous image from "The Grove" is available on cards, prints and gifts here. It's also available as fine art paper and canvas prints, matted and/or framed, in this gallery here.
I have some other great scenes I'll be sharing soon from this park visit, and a few birds of prey photos as well. This park rescues injured, wild birds and keeps them in captivity until they heal, and there were several there when we visited.
