On the Button

The Fern Whisperer
I can get a rough idea whether or not I've captured the image I intended in the forest, but don't know for sure until I view it on my computer screen. These are the two photographs that pleased me the most this year.
The Swimming Hole Chill

Scene not Seen

I envisioned nestling in the cool green, shading as little of the moss as possible. While setting up the picture, I did not notice the twig that ended up crossing above my balls. I was pleased with the capture, but owing to the obtrusive twig, did not post it. Just one of the pitfalls when working/playing both sides of the camera in the woods.

Polar Bare

Well, perhaps not polar bare, but after a few days of cold conditioning, I finally found the balls for some northern exposure.

On Strike

A birch tree near Flagstone Bog had been looking haggard for a year or so and did not leaf out last spring. I cut it down a couple of weeks ago, for firewood, and discovered a lightning strike had been responsible for the tree's demise, as illustrated by unusual mottling in the trunk. Normally, distinct rings would be visible.
