Challenge: Branch (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Toshiba PDR-M65
Location: Boundary Waters Canoe Area
Date: Sep 1, 2005
Galleries: Nature, Travel
Date Uploaded: Sep 6, 2005

I took this picture last week while I was canoeing and backpacking in the Boundary Waters in Minnesota. I named it Departure because of the feeling of loneliness mixed with euphoria, emptiness mixed with intimacy, depth mixed with weightlessness. The piece of bark is peeling of the branch and will never return.

What does a dog do?


The fact that the title says departure can be applied to the subject which is both a departure from the tree, and a departure from the strict chalenge definitions. The fact that it does bear some resemblance to a branch helps bring this nicely in line.

Nice detail in the shadows. Colours are a bit drab and that branch above the bark is quite distracting.

branch or bark?

For such a close textural study, I would have liked to see less details in the background distracting from the main subject. Just the texture of the water maybe?

This would look great taken with a better light (different time of the day)
