Bucolic bliss

Getting out of traffic by crossing the highway at San Antonio Road is a diversion I do quite often on my way home. Because it comes at the end of my commute, going that way affords me a little time to unwind from the frenetic traffic flow. It has also provided me with quite a few surprising photo opportunities over the past 9 months–especially when I’ve turned up the “I” Street extension. Today’s surprise was a large sow rooting by a big rock. The sow wasn’t much interested in posing for me so I took her picture as I saw her–then played with the scene in Nik Silver Efex Pro.

  1. Really digging this one.
    I recently saw a film adaptation of Orwell’s “Animal Farm” so I’m slightly worried about its nonchalant posture, but aside from that it’s a great shot! The spotting on the critter plays really well with the texture of the rock & texture of the background grass. Kudos.
