The Way I See It

Sunlight Through The Trees

In my evolving feelings about photography, I’ve been making a fair number of interpretive and abstract images. I shot this the other day, as I was trudging around amidst beautiful fall colors. The sunlight was piercing through the brilliant greens and golds immediately in front of me, creating gorgeous speckles of Autumn. It would have been ideal if there had been a breeze also but since there wasn’t, I decided to introduce some movement of my own. My more documentary pieces of this season’s colors can be found here, and here.

Photog Notes
I debated long and hard about posting this image. In my heart of hearts, I like landscape and nature photography that is calm and peaceful, which this image certainly isn’t. But ultimately, the draw of the movement and colors won out and so here it is. 😉 I shot this with the camera set to ISO 200, tripping the shutter at 2/3 of a second with the aperture at f/19.

  1. I’m working more with abstracts in photography, so I can really appreciate an image like this. Like it. 🙂

    • Thanks, Katie! As hard as it is to produce great documentary images, I find compelling abstracts that much more difficult to create. Keep up the great work.

  2. A fantastic image Ray! the trunk is very figurative and it seems there is a small figure to the left of it. Full of life!
