Grass snake

A wonderful  shooting experience with friends Bore and Leppis in Kirkkonummi, today. Grass snakes in many colors including a complete black one were all around and they do not care of the photographers, almost not at all.

Took some time to adjust the picture to look like it was in reality..  The key was to take highlights down to the bottom and shadows somewhat up in Lightroom. In the raw picture the sky was much more yellowish than it actually was.
