Making Mountains from Gravel Hills

I was asked to do another Polaronesie shoot, something I’m always happy to do. But this time I was presented with a bit of a challenge.

After a little bit of Photoshop work, I got these.

You can look for the rest of the photos from this shoot on Polaronesie.com
