One from the Quantock Hills earlier this week



Has the feel almost of a Currier/Ives litho... :)

Nice!

Reminds me of something similar I took in Grand Teton:

Itīs very close, and the image below is a picture of Alain when he takes the image you are linking to.  ;D

The image was taken on a workshop with Alain.  ;)

I thought it must have been a workshop. The light was to similar.

Beautiful image.

How odd I clicked on the file name, rather than the image itself, only to have it open in Photoshop.

Perhaps because you set it in general preferences that jpeg files be always opened in Photoshop?

I did not know that I was choosing to actually open the file rather than viewing it via my browser...

If you click the name, it will start a download,
if you click the thumbnail, it will view in your browser...

Without intending to reopen old sores: doesn't that comment sum up, pefectly, the difference between creating and observing that I vaguely recall discussing in another thread?

Some trees in Vernuga, Valtelline Valley. I think they should be populus tremula, (aspens?).

I'm not sure if that's what they should be, but that's what they appear to be!  :)

Populus tremuloides here in North America - similar, but a bit different.

Here is one with extreme dynamic range.  Certainly a very hard image to pull off.  I tried for 4 years to get this image to happen with the right set of clouds and fall color on the distant shore, with no wind and the right grasses on the shoreline.  Finally it happened.  Its also a stitch at 15 sec.  May I say what a bitch.  15 sec with no wind for 2 shots in row.  BUt I got it in one take.  Thats all I had before the wind came up and clouds changed.

Thank you very much Mike :), at last I understand what the aspens are. I began some years ago thinking the aspens are betula, more recently concluded they could be populus tremula but I too saw the difference: the trunk of my populus isn't white...

Very different to those with which I associate you... work of a style (not stylization) and technique unique to a photographer's intimacy with place...this one very different to those, but draws me in to hear you in the considerations at the time..

Thanks Patricia, I would agree.  Although I'm always looking for trees that stand out in their own merit.  But they are not easily found.  In the past I have drawn out the trees I'm looking for to refresh my memory when I'm out shooting.  This one has stood out for years but it takes a lot of rain and snow 2 years before these Sugar Pine to develop these amazing large Cones.  But the difficulty is to get the separation from the background and have the background add to the shot.  Here are some I have posted before that I love in this style.  The first is dogwood shot in the full moon for 8 minutes.  Second is a ancient pine "I drew the shot I wanted seven years earlier"  that has such amazing structure with a rain drizzle making the background very elegant.  The third is a 500 year grove oaks which I watched turn color for 7 days and finally capture it.  The fourth is a study of ancient folding screen from Japan and my rendition of what I wanted to capture and create as though I was a painter.  Loved our chat in the past.  Tim Wolcott
