Not long ago, in early December, we were walking Amy, Kelli, and Macy down by the Neuse River near New Bern, NC. It was one of those gray, overcast winter days that reminds me of a different time, perhaps the beginning of time. Looking at a scene like this, I doubt much has changed over the years.

I was definitely going for a more surrealistic look on this, while still retaining all the great details in the scene. Nine exposures +/-1EV merged in Photomatix Pro4, with lots of love from Nik Software Color Efex Pro and DeFine 2.
