I slowly getting around to the fall images that I shot last Autumn.  Here is a couple new ones.  I have been waiting 3 years to shoot this set of trees.  Finally weather, wind and peak fall came together to shoot this nice set of trees.  Tim

Great colours, Tim.  I'm sure the small .jpg files don't do them justice.

Here is a recent shot of mine, from Southwest Portugal. I was going back home after an afternoon of some great photography on the beach, when I spotted this one.

Obviously, an invitation to plant one of mine.

However, it's probably older than I and certainly has seen more of life walking past... I base that assumption on its look of absolute depression. It was shot on flm - probably HP4 Plus - some many years ago, and one of the last films I tried to push through the soup in Spain. Or anywhere else, for that matter. It's still doing its best to come alive every year, but sea air and vandals don't help much.

I wonder why it reminds me of Avedon's rural American People saga, even thought there isn't a roll of Colorama in sight...

I thought I would post an article I recently wrote for Pro Nature Photography with 12 panoramas of trees. I hope you find it interesting.

I'm usually hangin' around lurking, but I've finally decided to make a post and share one of my tree images with you all.  This image was taken this past Fall, at a forest preserve near where I live.  I consider myself an Architectural and Corporate photographer but have always loved landscape photography.

Wonderful Images Tim!  I'm not normally drawn to color images, but yours are different.  It was an absolute joy to scan the images from your website. Someday I hope to have a portfolio with the depth of yours.

James, thank you.  I think most photographers don't understand just how hard it is to find nature in its most intimate beauty.  I have shot Black in White forever and still do.  But my website has not been updated in some time.  But soon will be redoing my website and try to make it right.  I have long struggled to find perfection in chaos.  Nature always will throw a curve ball.  Color is like facing a slider, curve ball and a riser in the same pitch.  Because usually if the composition is great the color sucks.  I always say a great color image is a great black and white images in disguise. 

I find there is an amazing amount of preparation needed to execute every image the way I pre-visualize it.  If I get down in your neck of the woods I give you a ring.  Tim

I agree. I particularly like the second, although in my usual misanthropic way, I'd like it more without the people in it! Where did you ake these?

Thank you Tim and Jeremy. These were all taken within walking distance of our home in Ivinghoe, Buckinghamshire. The one you like is of the Tring Resevoirs and the people are fishing. I love the delicate winter treeline in this one.

Nice shots Alistair and Mike.  Don't know why I never get motivated to shoot trees unless its winter in upstate NY.
