This was a digital photo from the Horseshoe trails at Grapevine Lake at an old steep bike trail which cuts down through a ravine. Its actually quite steep and I was terrified of it when I was a younger kid. While printing, I couldn't seem to get the plants to be the right shade of green, using green pigments alone at least. By making the dirt red (it is Texas afterall) the greens really poped turning this into a remarkable print.
