I’m doing a series on clouds with a technique under development. Not much of the sea here as I was shooting on a cliff and didn’t want to include waves. I’m using a mirrorless camera with a manual lens so that I don’t have to monkey around with autofocus which just gets in the way for these images.
I really didn’t want to go to the Eiffel Tower on March 14. But, I had read that there was to be a “race” of vintage cars starting there. There was no sign of them. I saw some convertible Jags with union jacks covering them which were a tour company. The drivers had no idea what I was talking about. So, here I was.
Clearly there must be something hallucinogenic in the waters of Redwood Creek. It seems to be getting worse. Time to get back to more normal stuff.
BTW, this is an alder most likely broken by a falling tree in a storm.
Locally, trees with hanging moss are sometimes called Spirit Trees.
Back to whimsicality. Enjoy.
I love to mine my old work and rework them with what I know now. This is from 2009 next to Redwood Creek north of Orick, CA.
For five months, on and off, I’ve been trying to get this image to reflect both the subject and the area in which we live. You’d think that a snapshot would suffice. It didn’t. I kept coming back to it. I’m done with it for now.
With a sense of forboding, Pam, Steve, and I ventured into the forest where we found this spring. Thankfully, it was quite pleasant.
