This was going to be a “Wordless Wednesday” post, but it is 5 minutes until Thursday here and I felt a few words were needed. The first few are—the gator isn’t dead, he’s just laying up. This also stands testament to the rule of not feeding an alligator as they will get lazy and make themselves at home. This photo was taken in a park area where they are well fed and not perturbed over humans and their stuff.
For processing, this was the “turn day into night” white balance trick. The original was taken with a warm white balance but I converted the .raw file to tungsten, and then dropped the exposure down about a step.
