This is a photo I took while working at Camp Ozark in Mt. Ida, Arkansas last summer. I was a photographer there for about 3 solid months. It’s a nice silhouette of a counselor and two campers on a soft gradient sunset. At the time of this shot these guys were on a ropes course about 25 feet off the ground. The ropes course was one of my favorite places to shoot because of the beautiful lighting. The sun would peak through the trees at different angles making for really great views. I honestly don’t remember the thought I put into this shot before taking it, it was most likely a lucky press of the finger. To me, the strongest part is the color, I’m a sucker for smooth natural gradients. I love this photo because of the memories that comes with it, I think back to all the good times I had that summer and look forward to being there again in a few months.
