Looking Down on Servis Road

Looking Down

Servis Road runs along the Sourland Mountain Range in Skillman, New Jersey near the border with Hillsborough. It’s a semi-circular road barely wide enough for a car to pass. The road goes up the side of the mountain and then back down to Hollow Road. I took this from the top of Servis Road looking down onto Hollow Road. This is a three image HDR converted to B&W in Silver EFX Pro. You can find the colour version on my 500px profile.

I love the golden colour of the light and the way it seems to bring out the colour of the sand.

I think this is an HDR image. Perhaps Trey used luminosity masks on the sky since the sun seems so hot. I love the grouping of spherical boulders. They remind me of very large turtle eggs. Perhaps Godzilla laid eggs here millennia ago and these are the petrified remains. I like how the tree stump continues the golden theme started by the sun.

Based on the EXIF data, this image was taken at sunrise on the east coast of New Zealand on a wide-angle lens.

Apprentice is to find 10 photos from at least three different photographers they admire and share them with the community specifically in the “Level 7 – Challenge” category. Additionally, they should talk about why they find the photos interesting or inspirational.
