The forest has been kind to me this year. Each time I’ve gone to the rainforest, I’ve come back with at least a keeper. The coast on the other hand, hasn’t played along so well.
Every process has a beginning, a middle and an end. Each part of the process, has three parts as well: the beginning of the beginning, the middle of the beginning, the end of the beginning, and so on.
The middle in any process, is The Great Divide. That part where the beginning and the enthusiasm related to getting going is long gone, and the end is still too far away. This is where processes either derail, or gain momentum and flourish. Whatever the case, the energy required to move along comes from within us.
On this particular shooting excursion, I had hit the middle the day before. I felt tired, grumpy, filthy (hadn’t showered in several days). I had no desire to shoot, explore, etc. Nothing! The strategy employed when this happened, was to simply chill, don’t force things and simply observe and let go.
The following morning, which is when this photograph was made, my energy was back up again, and I was ready to open myself to observing again. And it didn’t take long to found this scene.
The way the hanging moss on the trees gets lit by the rising sun, makes them seem like they are lit by electricity. The bed of clover on the ground compliments the entire frame rather nicely!
Let me know what you think, ok!
