Natural Bridge Virginia

Natural Bridge Virginia
Natural Bridge, VA - My fish-eye lens has become a vacation must as there are so many wonderful places that I want to remember in total, not just with bits and pieces. Even my ultra wide angle lens was unable to capture this scene to my satisfaction as I wanted a view both up and down the stream from the base of this natural bridge. This nearly 180 degree view really does capture the feeling that you get while standing at the front of this amphitheater where they give a small history lesson of the site.

Also, I seem to have been fortunate to visit this great natural wonder shortly after the Governor of Virginia. These beautiful Hibiscus flowers would not normally have been available to use as foreground interest but I was told the plants were staged in this location for a speech by the Governor just days before my arrival. Sadly, attempts to capture better dynamic range in three shot brackets were mostly unsuccessful as the wind made these flowers very uncooperative. In the end, I simply chose to edit and post the "minus" shot for its better blue sky and sharper flower ...
