Challenge: Mystery Word Triptych (Advanced Editing VII*)
Collection: Portfolio
Camera: Canon EOS-5D Mark II
Lens: Carl Zeiss 35mm f/1.4 Distagon T for Canon EF mount
Location: Lake McConaughy, Nebraska
Date: Jul 14, 2012
Aperture: f/11
ISO: 100
Date Uploaded: Jul 19, 2012

My secret word is "Tracks"

Was camping at Lake McConaughy in western Nebraska on the very sandy shores. One evening, the wind came up strong for a couple hours. The next morning, I got up and was looking for something to shoot and saw these tracks in the sand. I did not know about this challenge as I did not have access to internet up there. SO, I arranged the images to create the theme after I arrived back home. Each single image could have been a good entry by itself in a challenge.

Thanks for all the great comments and votes. My first attempt at a Tryptech, think I could have done it better though.

I am devastated this didn't ribbon. Three beautiful images thoughtfully combined. Sixteen/schmixteen ... should be top three or top five IMHO.

They always travel single file to hide their numbers. ;)

(i know you're going for 'Tracks' here, but i thought sand people was funny)

Tracks. This is very lovely. The textures of the sand, the play of light and shadows on the ripples, the simple interest of the tracks themselves that evoke images of the animals and vehicle that have gone before all work well together for me. Voted earlier.
