The Windswept Pine by Margaret Frazer

About the Image(s)

I went to Killbear Provincial Park and photographed this iconic tree. The Windswept Pine. I used a 50mm lens 1/320 sec at f16 ISO 125
This is an amazing tree which may not be around much longer. A major limb died and it's starting to hollow out. So glad I got to see it and photograph it.

What a great catch!! I like how you composed the photo. You placed the tree perfectly for my eye. My only suggestion is that I would have liked to have seen more color, like a deeper blue in the sky, a deeper hue of brown in the rock. I might be wrong but I think that might happen if the ISO got dropped to 50 and the speed got dropped to match. A filter or polarizer would help. But what a shot!

Thanks Gary. I do have a polarizer. I wish I had thought to use it.   Posted: 10/22/2020 06:53:45

A nice picture, the tree is really well placed on the picture surface and you can see that it has had it hard and the wind has probably shaken it over the years. Lovely clouds as a background, I thought the colors are well balanced, nice picture.   Posted: 10/18/2020 09:12:07

Nicely done Margaret. Since the tree is almost a silhouette and the sky has some good clouds, you might try a Black/White conversion bringing out the texture in the foreground rocks.   Posted: 10/22/2020 11:25:00
