I always like this image. I have been going through my files of the last few years prepping images for an online store. It’s a good exercise and every photographer should do it. This is one from one og=f my Italy trips. It tells its own story. Lonely trees, big field and giant sky with magnificent clouds. Shot with a long lens from a distance only makes it stand out even more.
Taking a walk in the woods is always a nice thing to do, but with a camera it turns into an adventure. This was made while walking through Algonquin NP in Canada. As a photographer you train yourself to see the world in frames. You look around at the surrounding environment and try to see things as if they were framed in the viewfinder of a camera. You look, up, down, left, right and behind you. And, if you are lucky you see a shot. This one caught my attention and had all the elements of a defining image of fall. Color, a fallen birch tree, mushrooms, pine needles and color. I was dubious of such a strong horizontal of the tree going through the image but in the end I think it worked.

The last few weeks I have been in China leading a PODAS workshop. Interesting are to photography. Unfortunately the weather didn’t cooperate much and we were stuck in the thickest fog I have ever seen. Actually we were in cloud as we were very high up on a Mountain in the Yusmnyang area of Southwest China. Never the less every now and then the fog would clear a bit and present some amazing images. This si a shot of a lonely tree with terraced fields in front as the fog opened up for just one minute. I opted for grain and BW to give more of the mood to the image.
