This caught my eye as I was driving through Quabbin Park on Saturday morning. One of the things I look for is a complicated composition that can be made more simple by selection. I think I did that here. This scene is a couple of hundred feet into a wooded area along the roadside so there was a lot of landscape to see on both sides and in the foreground but the colors attracted me along with the birch trunks and I thought it was a nice bouquet the Quabbin was offering up to those who would see it.This is slightly uphill and required me to stand on an old stonewall with the tripod extended quite high to get over the top of some foreground growth. Another example of a tall tripod offering value. It was also a bit breezy, but as this was a little deep into the woods it was somewhat protected from the breeze. I wish that little bit of sky on the upper left wasn’t there but what can you do?
Speaking of my tripod, I went to a presentation at Hunt’s on Saturday afternoon. One of the speakers brought his tripod, a Gitzo like mine, but when fully extended it was probably a good foot taller than mine. 🙂
