(Photos: Landscapes - Wooden footbridges, streams, trees in fall)
Pathways and bridges once again :) My obsession comes out once more. That also includes streams, creeks, and washes as well for me -- as they are actually some of my favorite trails to take.
I am not sure if everyone has the same reaction, but when there's a clear and visible path in a photo it makes it easier for me to imagine myself traveling through the scene.
A big reason for these wooden walkways/bridges is because there are pretty large parts of this park that are covered in shallow water.
It might not be easy to tell, but beneath a lot of the foliage there is actually shallow water.
I think that maybe this is missing something without the sky peeking out, but that's okay.
Playing with vertical images to show more scale in the trees.
I think this one is my favorite, it's just so verdant with the greens and yellows.
Again -- Definitely would have liked to have made it out here earlier in the season. Still had a great time here though
Stream scene! Probably could have cropped it better to accentuate the stream part of it, but I was more focused on the forest at the time.
I like how the diffused light falls right through the color on the leaves, which is why I left it this way. 😃
I call this "seeing the forest through the trees". It's really hard to capture the experience of walking through the woods with a camera. When you're there it's easy to focus on everything around you, but when it's been abstracted in a photograph it seems more chaotic than serene.
This little red tree on the left ends up becoming the subject for me, so I think that is why it works for me.
Notes on any of these three volumes would be appreciated. I think there were some great shots in here, though there are some that could probably be improved as well. I'm always striving to improve!
Anyways, thanks for coming by --
