Beyond the BackyardMerritt Island National Wildlife Refuge

Happy Halloween!

I was photographing the sunrise at Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge back in September when I noticed this spider.  His web was suspended between branches, and the background was the bright orange reflections of the sunrise in the water.  I deliberately underexposed to bring out the colors in the background and to render the spider as a silhouette.  Then I bracketed for HDR.  Then I kept it waiting for Halloween!  Happy Halloween!
