Without having originally intended it, I think this photo became a bit of a political commentary… with Uncle Sam standing beside the dinosaur of the US government, looking out over a vast emptiness. Or something. 🙂
This is one of the photos where I did take some liberty with the clouds, but I always try to keep from creating parts of an image from whole-cloth… ideally if I’ve taken several shots in the same area there’ll be parts of another image I can work in to get the look I’m going for.
Exposure: 1/400 seconds
Focal Length: 250 mm
