About This Shoot
Date: 3 August 2012
Location: Quivira Nat'l Wildlife Refuge, Kansas
Shoot Type: Landscape
Rating:
Synopsis:
I decided to photograph the drought scenes along Wildlife Drive (a component of the Quivira Nat'l Wildlife Refuge). The shoot lasted about an hour and a half or so photographing various dried up salt marshes and flats, including the Big Salt Marsh along wildlife drive. The sunset was quite photogenic as distant storms spread a band of cirrus clouds with other mid and high-level clouds present to accentuate the sky during this time and enhancing the images.
