Shooting into a sunset can be difficult. Finally captured this image as the sun was falling behind the trees. Balanced the contrast enough to see detail in the foreground. Okefenokee Swamp in 2009.
The beginning of the boat tour is through a tangled forest and narrow channel. Just remember not having much light to work with. Black and white along the bank.

Frequently traveling to Georgia for Thanksgiving we took a quick excursion in 2009. Fun boat tour images I haven't looked at since 2009.
