The Trees – A New Series Takes Root
“There is unrest in the forest
There is trouble with the trees
For the maples want more sunlight
And the oaks ignore their pleas”
Rush– The Trees
I’m so thrilled, in the pursuit of creating images using the RX10 for an upcoming presentation on the camera I stumbled upon a new series that is taking shape, The Trees.
I like to use the long fast lens on the camera to find a pattern and texture of the trees. I am shooting jpegs, and then putting them into Nik Silver EFX2 for a black and white treatment.
I’ll be honest, I don’t really care for Nature photography. But this series is resonating to me, I mean I do really like trees. They are old and wise in general, they have a mystical quality. Being pagan it’s like photographing gods in many ways.
I hope you like the trees.
David, Beautiful AND awsome! You have discivered a bew dimension withibio a very old dimension. Bravo! Is the Sony RX a new instrument? I am deswperately seeking a new Good P&S, is this it?
Will you be in the store today (T%uesday) I have to buy some stuff and wonder if the gift card is still available. Let me know.
The RX is a little big for you Len, but the RX100III might be just right.
Lovely series, David. My favorite is no.4; with the house dimly in the background. It looks like the two trees are holding hands.

Thanks Alan, I have a new best buddy- fog.
These are gorgeous! But I am sure you knew I would love them. you have to come visit – the fall has been amazing and we live across the street from a park.
Thanks Jill, I think now you have settled, a ride up is in order.
