The Window

Daily photo - The Window

Time for a short break from sunset photos (although I still have a few hundred of unprocessed sunset photos... and plans to take a few hundred more in the coming week).

So today I would like to share a HDR picture I took in one of the cenotes in Mexico. It wasn't the most beautiful cenote I've ever seen but the light entering through hole at its top was really spectacular with all those gorgeous sun rays and tiny birds flying "between" them. Really stunning. And for some reasons this place resembled scenes from Indiana Jones movies (or Tomb Raider game)... don't know why, but it looked quite familiar :)

BTW if you would like to learn more about HDR photography, make sure to read my free HDR tutorial.
