"Creativity is an inherent human quality of the highest order. When we create, we become more than the sum of our parts." Yanni
During my excersions with the camera I make a point of connecting with certain subjects on a regular basis as I realize from past experiences that changes in climate, lighting and other such things can render subjects with differing tonal qualities from past visits. The tree above is no exception and is one of my favorite places to visit when in the area.
First off, this marvelous individual has such a beautiful structure that is most apparent when it is missing its leaves. While I have not been to places like Africa it reminds me of the trees that I've seen in photographs taken there. On this particular day the scene was enhanced by a background of wispy clouds that provided a soft defuse lighting to the scene.
Scenes like this remind me that while most pictures should contain a subject or grounding point it's the collection of many parts that contribute to the completeness of the picture. Just as the sum total of our life experiences help determine who we are, not just one particular day.
Thank you all for visiting and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
