Cactus foreground for sunset in Edgewood
It had been a while since I was in Edgewood, New Mexico for a rural land real estate shoot until making a return this week to photograph adjacent lots that were covered in vegetation. I am always glad to see a piece of rural land real estate have a lot of cactus, shrubs, and flora in general as this at least gives me some foreground subject matter to include in my signature HDR sunset shots. An added bonus was this land sitting in small valley with hills nearby to added more visual interest to these landscape shots. When photographing land for clients I do not just include wide open landscape shots. Using either my 70-200mm f/2.8 or 90mm f/2.8 macro lenses I like to get some closeups of the vegetation or flowers if there are any. So when a customer is browsing the gallery she/he gets the macro and micro views of the property.
