This image was made in June, Kodiak Alaska. I liked the contrast of the bleached stump and the living green landscape. I wanted to preserve the details of the texture of the stump so i literally set up the tripod on top of the stump and angled the camera down enough to capture the stump and some sky. Standing on the stump gave me a higher vantage point which allowed me to include the emerald and gold grass in the composition as well. The Summers here are beautiful when the weather cooperates.
