Autumn Trees

These trees are situated in one of NSW’s state forests.

I was trying to capture the mound surrounded by the trees at an angle that captured the trees’ height and made the shot kind of look dramatic. I should’ve gone for a lower angle and aimed upward as this is a little too level to capture what I was going for.

I still like the result, however, as the trees seem to increase in their clustering the closer to the mound they are (strictly in terms of seeing the photo as being on a flat plane).

This is my submission into the one hundred-and-sixth Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

The theme for this one is “Autumn“.

This shot was taken in Autumn and feels much like Autumn, hence my using it for this week.

The challenge is hosted by four people and cycles weekly:

Week 1 – Patti

Week 2 – Ann-Christine aka Leya

Week 3 – Amy

Week 4 – Tina

This one is hosted by Patti. Next week’s host is Leya.

I recommend checking out how people are interpreting the challenges. I also recommend joining in. It’s a growing, fun community.

I hope you enjoy.

    The trees are beautiful, SH, and you can see the rise of the hill and the cluster of trees. It feels like autumn in the shot. As you say, it would be interesting to get down lower and shoot up. That would be very dramatic, I think.

    I always think of the interconnection between the trees’ roots when I see shots like this one SH. They share resources where we can’t see it – a lesson from which we could all learn

    • Funny you mention that as it can be quite difficult to study underground invertebrates due to the wonders of soil, which in some ways is good, but in some ways bad.

      I hadn’t thought of the roots when I took this, but I might just think about them now. Cheers for the viewpoint.
