Taken at a local park where I live. Initially I just passed on this photograph, but after looking at it some more I decided to see what I could do with it. So after some minor adjustments (exposure, crop, deletions), I came up with this. I like that the front of the photograph is in focus and that the rear is out of focus. I think the center plant moves you through the seen and the lack of focus in the back creates depth and curiosity about where the path leads. But I do find the tangle of branches in the lower right and the branches and leaves in the top right to be distractions.
Been a while since I posted. I took this back in January when I was using a prime lens. This caught my eye when I was going back over photographs. Not sure if this one tree or multiple trees sharing the same place. Looking forward to photographing later this year with leaves and maybe a wider lens opening.
Missed last week. Haven’t taken any photos since January so I need to get out now that weather is getting better. Took this at the same time I took Fallen Tree. I was drawn to the arch formed by the bent limb and how it seems to draw you into the forest.
Took a walk on the path near my house last week in hopes of finding a nice composition. As the weather was overcast and we are in the middle of winter, I decided to look for some unusual tree formations. While this tree is obviously dead, the way it had fallen over and was propped up by its branches.
Another photograph from 23 October. This one is of an area that I posted in June, Pond. I had been hoping to revisit it when the time and coloring were different. I had almost forgot about it, but as I was turning up the path I turned back to check it out. I’m glad I did because I think that the fog and partial fall coloring made it worthwhile.
While out hiking recently I came across this fallen tree. Thought that the root pattern was interesting and might make a good composition. Tried three different angles, and chose this straight on look.
Didn’t have anything new to post so dug through some old pictures. This one was taken on our family vacation in 2017 to Maine. When I first looked at this picture I tried to eliminate the fog, but later realized that was what made me take the photograph to begin with.
