Ancient Tree Roots

It can be difficult to make a great image in a forest unless you can find a pattern in the trees or a stand of trees without much undergrowth.

At Cathedral Grove on Vancouver Island, where I made the abstract image in yesterday’s post, I tried a different tactic. I made this image of just a small portion of one of the giant trees.

      Thank you very much for your comments Len. I like to try to isolate the roots or the middle or the top of the trees, but haven’t had much success trying to include it all in one frame.

    There’s a saying we have in the UK ‘can’t see the wood for the trees’. Although it’s nothing to do with photography it does somehow, obliquely, comment on the problems of finding something to ‘shoot’ in the middle of a forest. You found it! Great rooty tentacles.

      Hey Andy! Exactly! We say “can’t see the forest for the trees”. I have always found it interesting how hard it is to find a good frame when you are surrounded by vast beauty. It is difficult to give it justice sometimes. Thanks for your comments as always, my friend.
