Autumn Dusk by hougaard Autumn Dusk by hougaard
The Bettys Bay wetlands under amazing autumn light. This sunset was last year in April, but with recent improvement in my processing skills I went through some of my favorite images from 2009 again and reprocessed some.

Bettys Bay, South Africa

5D II, 16-35mm II, 3 exposures

Curious about how I blend and process my images? Check out my blog - www.hougaardmalan.com/blog

Hougaard, I have to say, you are probably my favourite photographer here on dA. You make images I only dream I could put together.
