In Search of Nepal at Disney's Animal Kingdom

Photographic Innoventions by Scott Thomas

I know I will never travel to Nepal like Indiana Jones did. Luckily, I can photograph Walt Disney World's version of Nepal at Disney's Animal Kingdom Expedition: EVEREST. I am always searching for new angles and compositions like Indy searched for rare artifacts. Walking over the metal bridge with Everest behind me I spotted one of the access trails to the seating area for the Rivers of Light nighttime show. That got me down to the water's edge where I took the photo you see here.

If I ignored all the sounds of the park around me, I could almost feel the call of the great mountain or maybe the sound I heard was of the guests screaming down the big drop of the ride. Anyway, the Sun was at a bad angle with lots of shadows in the wrong places. I used Skylum's Intensify CK to pull out the colorful details.

If you have not gotten into the habit, I urge you to always flip your camera into a vertical orientation to see if there is a good composition to be found. I zoomed in to simplify the composition as well. I liked how this photo flowed from green below to blue above with a nice gradient of natural colors in-between. The bridge is the only hint of civilization about.

I had fun in my search for Nepal. Think I will try another exotic location on my next trip to Walt Disney World.
