enjoy the freshness

I think its a Tallowood tree, I saw this tree many many years ago and the only thing that has changed…is the moss, its got a little less than before…oh there was also some more bush litter (branches leaves etc) but really… all those years could have just been a few days for all I know. As cliche as it may sound, time really does stand still in forests like this, time in the scale of humans anyway (unless they cut it down)

I took a number shots of this tree, i bracketed this particular frame thinking that I may need to blend the images together to achieve the full dynamic range, however the D750 did a pretty good job with a single shot, and this particular moment had some nice filtered light thru the trees and a small amount of fog rolling through the undergrowth..

I did get a few strange stares from the bushwalkers as I stood in a mozzie infested creek amongst the forest tree litter, but for once, my mozzie repellant worked… i only got bitten about 100 times rather than a million 😉

Exif love:

  1. +Liz C No problem, I am a fairing inactive mod over there at the moment, but I still get over there quite often 🙂
    As I always say, the CPL is probably the single most essential filter which cannot be replicated in post processing, there is also only a handful of occasions (landscape stuff) where I would not have it fitted. The great thing is you can always rotate it to remove the effect as required.
