By the tracks (2)

Another picture I took of Joan walking along the tracks under M14.  She stopped to see where I was.  I had slowed my pace to take pictures of scenes and images as they presented themselves.  Here, I saw Joan standing at the side of the tracks looking back for me along the curve.

Lone tree in the field

Lone tree in the field

This tree, standing alone in an opening between forests of trees, grabbed my attention from the first time it caught my eye.  All its branches to one side, some dead, some full of life.  I tried capturing that which compelled me to it through many pictures I took from various angles and exposure settings.  None did what I thought had caught my perception of the tree’s essence until weeks later when I looked at one particular photo I had taken as a black and white image.  It still does not do justice for whatever caught my attention for so long but it gets me closer.
