Dried Mud Monday

Dried Mud Monday.
I know, no such thing as dried mud Monday, but I have seen post from folks saying Macro Monday, but I like my idea better. While Cecil Holmes and I were scouting for our workshop in Apalachicola we found a really cool “leftover” from the storm surge at Scipio Creek. The mud, probably from the river bed, had formed in a puddle and dried over the previous weeks since the Hurricane. We were really amazed that there was only a small section that had foot prints or tire marks through it. Of course we had to photograph it! I did not take a macro lens on the trip so I used the Tamron SP 24-70mm G2 lens at 70mm and got parallel to the ground enabling me to maximize my depth of field, even at f11. I decided on converting it to black and white to minimize the distractions of the debris that gathered in the cracks. On a side note, that mud does not come off shoes or tripod bottoms very easily…
