Riparian Jungle (7 photos)

I took advantage of some recent foggy mornings to photograph the chaotic riparian woodland at the Blue Sky Ecological Reserve. They’re probably not the most accessible images, but I think these are my favorite photos from this place right now – to me, they capture the essence of this riparian jungle during our dry season.

The subject matter of these photos is rather chaotic and/or complex, and the flat light of the foggy morning eliminated the additional layer of complexity that direct sunlight (and shadows…) would add. What’s more, late in summer the colors of dry and evergreen vegetation adds contrast, which is also helping with the separation of individual elements (especially compared to Spring, when everything is different shades of green). And last not least, I’ve been using fast prime lenses for the photos, leaving the aperture relatively wide open – thus utilizing limited depth of field for yet more separation. It was a fun exercise!
