This was first attempt with a long shutter speed. The very low light enabled me to obtain a 13sec exposure time.
I was travel back to St.John's from St.Mary's Newfoundland. When I noticed this bog area along side the road, I pulled my car over and took it from the seat of the car. I like it as it shows the last light of the sunset and the beginning of night. There is slight blurring of the tallest juniper and clouds d/t the small breeze and the 13sec exposure.
St.Mary's is located in the South East portion of the Avalon Peninsula, Newfoundland. It dates back to the beginning of Newfoundland, and was used by the Portuguese, French and English Fisherman that reaped the rewards of the largest fish stock in the world (Grand Banks). It received it's name from the Portuguese, as it was the Patron Saint of their Fisherman.
The inhabitants of today are decedents of Irish Settles, including my own. John Fagan, who sailed from Waterford Ireland in 1764.

I like this shot. Not an easy one and I think you did very well with the cropping. Nice colors and shapes on trees. Not easy to balance opening for DOF and speed for moving clouds.

Very effective title.
I love how the clouds open directly in the center of the photo.
Perfect timing, considering the moving clouds.
Another excellent shot.
