The Bear's Den by reindeer


Available to buy on…

=) This is the pedestrian and bicycle tunnel in Kingston, NJ, USA, which runs under route 27. I didn’t relish going into the tunnel, especially because it was damp from the heavy downpours we had last week. The locals suffered flooding, high winds, downed trees and loss of electricity for days. At first, I just stood at the edge of the tunnel taking some photos…but the way the photos were turning out made me go inside for more. Next thing I know, I am in the middle of it, liking it!! Well, okay, it was kind of creepy. The things my camera makes me do! =) 18 March 2010 @ 1522 226 views as of 27 January 2012

    This is such a neat photo… the sepia and shiny reflection work so well together. Glad you took the picture — not sure if I’d want to venture in there, either! :o)

  • haha. Thanks Jessica! The black and white version was interesting but the water really took on a shine in the sepia. =)

    its not exactly beautiful but its so graphically strong and visually compelling that it makes you stop and look, no wonder you had to go back.. I like your processing here very much too, reindeer

  • What a great comment! I’m pleased you find it visually compelling Peter. Always appreciate your thoughts. Cheers! =)
