I walked further along the path, and took several shots through the trees, bracketing. I like this one, I think it looks "painterly," I like the contrast, and the angle of the tree branches.
I walked to the end of the lake and got wet feet trying to jump out to the gravel bar. Again, I like the reflections and the strong lines.
I walked around the other side of the lake, and once again admired the reflections.
However, I thought the foreground needed a feature. Since there weren't any ducks about to swim into the frame, I threw a rock into the lake.
I never was much of a ball player, and I shanked the rock off to the left. But then from behind me a chocolate lab swam out after the rock.
And now I had my foreground feature!
|Where did it go? I know it's here somewhere!|
For this last shot I got lower, closer to the water, and positioned the deadhead log at one of the "rule-of-thirds" intersections.
I might not make any money at it, but it sure is fun!
