I drove Jamie up to the woods again this evening. It seemed like it had been a few days and the sun was setting, creating a beautiful light. I photographed the road, which looked spectacular again. The light in the upper branches of the trees was making the fresh leaves glow against the sky. I think the photographs will be really nice.
I don’t know what I will be able to do with all of the spectacular photographs of this road. I can probably use no more than a handful of them. Maybe ten or twelve at the most. Perhaps one for each month. This view has provided riches that I never expected.
Moving onto the trails, I photograph the branches and trunks of the trees along the trail because the light from the setting sun is so nice. I also shoot some of the little leaves that are still emerging from the trees.
Then I head down to the Southern lookout over the marsh and I find that the marsh is looking less and less interesting as the tree trunks are covered by new leaves. It might look better with a sunrise behind it, but it looks kind of flat now.
Jamie and I head back to the car from there. I stop and take a couple of shots of the brush and trees with the beautiful sunset light behind them. I don’t know how these will work out, but they look good through the viewfinder, so I’m hopeful.
That’s it for the evening. We load up the car and head home for the evening.
It’s getting so this photography is almost a full time thing these days. I’m often shooting more than once a day, and the flood of images is hard to even get edited and posted. I haven’t been gathering my best photographs into their folder for a while now, as the pain of my back injury eats up my time and attention.
I really need to go back and do that, because I have a critique session with my artist friends tomorrow night. I usually select and print some photographs for the critique. I don’t even know what I will select because I haven’t been doing the selecting as I go along. I’ll try to do it tomorrow. I can’t let this get out of hand. I would hate to have to go back through months of images and sort the best of them out all at one time.
