09.26.2014 And now for something completely different

Here is another from a few weeks back, but a little less usual than my regular endeavors.  It is ok in color, but I prefer the tonal effects in monochrome.Moosehorn-Pond-stump-082314-600WebWhat do you see here….besides the tree stump?

Have a great weekend everyone.  🙂

    I see a submerged tree stump.

    Ah……it’s a turtle 🙂

    I’m not usually a fan of b&w but this one caught my eye


  4. drawandshoot says:

    That’s very interesting, Steve. I think it might be a scarecrow lying on its back in the water. Probably trying to scare off those pesky Canada Geese!


  5. shoreacres says:

    It’s a pirogue filled with sugar cane stalks being pulled by alligators.

    The snout of a croc festooned with a goofy hat.


  7. Looks like a turtle but I have to be honest. Everything looks fuzzy so I assume that is how you wanted the pic to appear. The rest of it looks like tree roots that are partially submerged but I can not tell what the thinghy is that is next to the turtle. A tree stump perhaps- not sure.


  8. I don’t see no turtle! Anyway … hide-n-seek aside … this is a really nice shot Steve. And I do agree that the desaturation works very nicely indeed. I assume the exposure what somewhat lengthy, and that’s why the trees in the back are blurred … if this is so, why weren’t the tufts of grass moving as well? Nice, nice shot. D


    • The upper part of the left most root seems turtlish, David. Actually the exposure was not long….less than a second which is why the grass Isn’t blurred. I waited for the light breeze to let up but there was enough residual motion for the water to be blurry. It’s all a reflection in the background. Thanks.

    Hi Steve – I see a partially submerged tree trunk with under water root system, a large bullfrog in front of a turtle. Can’t make out other objects. Are you going to enlighten us?

    I can see a wooden octopus swimming around.


  11. Oh, Ben beat me to the octopus! My first thought (my bleary early morning eyes) thought underwater fireworks shooting off. This is a wonderful black and white shot.


    • Thanks, Melissa. Underwater fireworks. Now that is a unique vision.

      Well, aside from the turtle and octopus, I also see a person in the tub, albeit with a few extra limbs. Possibly even Beaker, although that idea was shot down pretty quickly elsewhere. 🙂


  12. Love your use of black & white photography…the photo is quite exceptional.
