Another Tree Shot. April 22, 2012

Here’s a pair of oaks in an incestuous embrace:

I’ve photographed these trees before, but it’s been a few years now, so I thought I’d revisit them.  This photo needs work; now that I have a sense of what atmospherics I’m looking for I’ll be back to shoot it again until I get it right.

This shot is courtesy of Elliot, with about one degree of tilt.  I was lying on my side with my head down hill and my face squeezed between the camera and ground, so the composition was a bit rushed.

Still, the verdant mossy bark gives it an other-worldly feel, and I like it well enough to keep trying for the money shot.

Closer To Home. April 7, 2009

It’s been a mixture of nice Spring weather and gnarly, bone-chilling days here this past week.  “Nice weather for ducks,” you might say:

mallard and mate

A mallard and his very well camouflaged mate endure a steady rain with aplomb.

All this rain has the rivers rippin’:

…and the pastures beginning to green up:

…which, of course pleases even the most discerning of grazers:

The maple buds are popping just as the moon is waxing:

I’m hoping for some nice skies as the full moon approaches – it’s been a couple of monthe since the weather cooperated with that!
