23 Apr 2018. One broken, one dead
I can’t count the number of times that I’ve been driving and seen, out of the corner of an eye, something that’s grabbed hold of me and almost begged to be featured in a photograph. Back in 2003 when I visited Western Michigan in winter, I was continually noticing things to include in photos, in particular, a cemetery that was blanketed by snow. My friend Clare, who was hosting my visit, asked “why do you want to take photos of a cemetery? You have cemeteries back home in Australia, don’t ya?”. My reply to him was “yeah, but ours aren’t covered in snow”. 🌌 🌲
Glimpsing these two trees–one alive but broken, and the other long-dead–as I drove down this country road on Sunday night, I knew I had to turn back and include them in a photograph with the rising core of the Milky Way. It was only just in time, though, as the clouds that are fringing the top of the shot covered the whole eastern sky in mere minutes after I snapped off the last of five frames for the night. Out-of-shot and to the left there was a bright orange street light, marking the nearby rural junction that is often shrouded in fog at this time of year. It took a lot of work in Lightroom to remove that horrible yellow stain from the photo.
