The whitish with a hint of blue on the left hand side allows the images to have a start and a finish to it.  I always compose my images with a start and finish.  Something I believe allows the viewer of my exhibition images to feel they can walk into one side and travel thru to the other.  Mike you absolutely right it makes you wonder what's out there.  All to many times photographers crop to tight and lose that mystery. A photograph must have room to breath and communicate with the spectator.   

This new one is also stitched.  I waited until the fog blocked the uglier trees in the background.  So it would feel very romantic.  The image was scouted to days before so when the fog came in I canoed across the pond and set up for the fog.

Boab Prison Tree, Western Australia. Said to be about 1500 years old it was used as a temporary prison for aboriginies whilst they were being transported. Oh, and it's not dead.

Hi Nass

Thanks for the kind words. Here are some new images taken in late August with a Horseman 617 camera with Velvia 50 film.

Ya call those trees?!?!?!?!?   ;D  Ya I know, I've worked up north myself.  Been a while since I used Velvia.  Really does push up the colour.  Some great work, though!!

The dwarf birch and bear berry were very red for about two days of our sixteen day trip. It was amazing to see.

What an ugly effing place, Tom!

It happens like that often: home sweet home turns out much better than you thought.

Winter winds have stripped the leaves from these Beech trees on Dartmoor. In more sheltered spots, the leaves will survive the winter, only falling when the new buds forces them off.

I like it. Bleak and desolate but quite beautiful.

Really like the abstract shapes and subtle tones of the first one...

I just hope nobody gets mad at me for resurrecting this old thread... with a bush.

It's too bad the right foreground is OOF, but I love the roots and the textures of the needles in mid-frame to background.

Yes, now that you mention it, I cannot get my eyes out of that OOF zone...

(Responding to the initial post) The Mono Lake image at the top is very cool. The color is just amazing.

I'm sure you and others have thought of this, but I think you have two images in one.

The driftwood and it's reflection could be cropped and work really well as a stand-alone. You could crop the
shot so the driftwood isn't centered, perhaps more to camera right.

the background looks a bit soft - did you intend that?
