Captured on January 17, 2014 - Choke Canyon State Park, Texas. After working some partially submerged trees along a small lake, Abbie and I decided to start making our way back to the vehicle before it got too dark. She was concerned about the high alligator population and was sure one was going to jump out of the water and grab her. I thought it was kind of humorous, but I also didn't want to have a gator guarding her nest between us and the parking lot. As we were crossing a large dry area of mud, the sun had just hit the horizon and was catching the edges of the peeled mud curling up. I worked as quickly as possible, running around trying to find a spot that worked as an interesting composition. I found one that suited me right before the light disappeared.
I love the detail and the texture in Parched. I've taken the 30x20 canvas to a few shows and a lot of people think it's actually three dimensional until they get up close. The way the light and the shadows play, and the variation in texture across the surface really makes this photograph.
