In search of artistic inspiration I began to dig a square hole in my backyard. Roots were growing under there. I waited until the sun hit a nice angle and made this photograph. It almost becomes a diorama of a tree itself… The funny thing here is fate. If I dug the hole just a few inches to the right or left it would not have worked. It would have just been a hole. Fate.
It’s really windy today. Even the weeping willow is dancing… I grabbed my camera and attached 2 separate neutral density filters to lengthen exposure. This allows me to take a really long exposure in sunlight. I set my camera to ISO 100, f/16 and took a few 30 second exposures of this weeping willow.
