This path is in the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens on the eastern slopes of Table Mountain.
When the light is low, like in this deep shadows on an overcast day, I underexpose by one stop because there is no danger of blown out highlight and the colours are saturated. Five RAW exposures _3 to +1 with tone mapping in Photomatix. Various layers and masks in CS4 complete the picture.
