I spent about half an hour shooting (I was under some time pressure). Besides, the blackflies were just out of their winter hibernation and they were voraciously hungry for human flesh. I had left my tripod at home, but I had an old one with me that I use as a stand for my external flash. It has a broken leg latch, but better than nothing!
Anyway, here are some images. I must have shot 50 different views and I don't know which one or ones I like best. I processed these a variety of ways. Please feed back which one or ones you like or dislike!
I actually painted this one using the mixer brushes in CS5
CAF (Content-aware Fill) was used to add flowers in the foreground. There was a gravel path there. I used Topaz Adjust to bring out the detail.
Obviously I used Topaz Adjust to bring out the detail. Not much else -- It really did look like this!
This is kind of over the top but I just liked the look. This was a 3-exposure HDR processed in Photomatix Pro.
