BELINDA GROVER PHOTOGRAPHY

STOPS ALONG THE WAY

AFTER YOU

24 Comments

I’ve sat on this image for quite a while, not sure whether to post it or not. I usually like to crop closer in to my subject(s) but in this case, I decided to focus on the rugged terrain and the challenging conditions these painted turtles face at our local reserve. I assume they made it safely across but I had to be somewhere that afternoon so I couldn’t wait around to find out😊.

  7. I like the wide shot, I see a story here in so many ways! I immediately saw Mama telling her little one to get back here! 😉

    I hope they did make it across. 🙂

  8. Great caption, Belinda! I like that you’ve included the whole scene and conveyed the “greenness” of the location.

  10. I like tightly cropped images, but these subjects do present a challenge. Nicely captured.
    Have you tried cropping to 16:9 aspect ratio with the turtles on the bottom third line? Then lighten and slightly desaturate the image?
