There are places that I frequently return to that hold a unique attraction
I am drawn to look, eager to listen, inspired to photograph. This ancient oak is one of those places, and has innumerable stories to tell, one can catch a glimpse of history, hear the wind whispering songs and the birds engaged in conversations.
The late morning light, business going on in the sky, geometry of the view, and intricate structure of the tree combined to create this image.
Shot with an iPhone 4S and 645 PRO as a black and white image, edited in Snapseed on phone first, then transferred to iPad and Camera Awesome to get file into Smugmug gallery. Shooting at a square format intentionally to emulate the experience of my old Mamiya C330. So many options these days.
