Doing my ‘photographer’s dawdle’ round the reservoir (see previous posts) I happened upon these two trees and felt they reminded me of something. I spent a few minutes doing the ‘mind’s eye’ thing – looking for some ideas on how to present them.
As I moved round the sun broke through a little more and the path dipped a little – laying on the floor (there was a fence between me and the trees) I managed to get the brow of the small rise and tree against the dark sky. I then remembered what the trees reminded me of – i.e. Acacia trees of Africa – okay, I was stretching the analogy a bit but it’s the nearest I’m going to come walking around a reservoir in North Yorkshire.
Of course, with such a dark sky I had to get a lower shot with more sky.
And a black and white version.
And further round, a mother/daughter portrait. This one given a bit of toning.
