One Tree Above the Others

During my recent jaunt through the bush I saw this scene. I tried to capture the tree sticking out among the rest, which I think that (in a most technical sense), I did. However, I really wanted to show its height.

I think that if I had my 70-200 with me it would’ve been much easier to emphasize, but I didn’t so I worked with what I had.

I feel that in a way this does show the tree’s height well, whilst also making it feel small within the context of the greater landscape. It easily draws attention to itself, but it’s also quite easy to let the eyes wander away.

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

The theme for this one is “Pick a Word“.

I went with “growing” and “crowded”; both of which are applicable (in certain ways) to this image.

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 Leya. Next week’s is guest-hosted by Rusha Sams of Oh the Places We See.

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.
