Interesting Tree

Posted by
john4jack (Corvallis, Oregon, United States) on 15 November 2009 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

This Juniper tree was in one of the units of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument. This is the last photograph before we get to our destination of Sumpter.

YESTERDAY'S METERING SUGGESTIONS came from Thom Hogan, one of my favorite technical resources. (Please note: almost all of my technical sharings come from outside resources.)

A MINOR FRUSTRATION - When someone comments on a photograph of mine, I click on their name to go their site and comment. Sometimes I am taken to a non-Am3 site; this is the case even with some who are on Am3. And, especially with sites in a non-English language, I can't figure out how to make a comment. At the very least, if you belong to Am3, please have us directed to your Am3 site.

NIKON D700 1/250 second F/9.0 ISO 200 40 mm (35mm equiv.)

The choice of focus is gorgeous in those luminous blacks & bokeh, no real scale so it could be a great or little tree and I love the idea of both worlds... (never heard the problem you mention about Am3 comments)

You certainly are right, it could tell us many things about surrounding world during it`s lifetime.
The photo is very, very impressive as your brilliant implementation. ( I apologize my poor English, my words may be sometimes quite wrong, but I never mean to be impolite )

The rugged looking juniper makes a fine subject in this image. Fine black and white work helps it succeed too. Very well done.
