Two Trees

NV5S0027-Edit-Edit

Over there, off to one side, another tree.  Two trees, each watching the other, keeping the other company.  One obviously older, having seen more, able to share with the other knowledge of the past.  They both watch, as the man on the side of the road takes pictures before vanishing down the October Road.

What Can Be Saved?

It often happens that an idea does not become what one wishes.  The execution in the moment seemed like it would work. But the realization when editing is that not much can be recovered from the available information.  So, what to do?  I’m not one to just give up and walk away.  I will take  time and play with sliders and curves to see what I might create from the data.  The October Road yields an interesting possibility.

A little flick of the camera, some fun in Photoshop using the oil paint filter and autumn takes on a slightly different look along the October road.

Two Shot Stop

A closer view of the reflections in the water.  I find it myself mesmerized as I fall into the patterns.  Just another wonderful stop on the October Road.

October Road

I had to travel some back roads in Wisconsin the other day and, of course, I had my camera bag with me.  The further south one goes, the more fall color you’ll see.  On this particular day, there was little if any breeze and the lakes and ponds were marvelously still.  So, take a little trip down an October road with me.  Oh yeah, if you’ve seen my work before, you know things might get interesting.
