    I'm a bit behind developing so my shots from last weekend are still latent images... hopefully I'll get them developed and printed before the MSA is finished 'cause I used a cheap camera for some...

    Toffle, your DeLaurier Trail Marsh 3 fits in well, your poetic approach shows. Trees are not an exclusive club. So many of us love them for deep reasons.

    Some of my fascination with trees comes from my childhood. I used to climb trees and make treehouses, chase snakes out to the thinnest branches, fall down into beds of soft nettle. I'd walk barefoot under Live Oaks, climb up to check out galls and ants.

    Ralph,

    You don't have to change your approach, I am a hunter, I rarely "make" photographs. But I understand the difference and we need both kinds. Instead of making Bonsai, you can go out and get the trees and bring them indoors...

    Here is one of mine which won first prize in a competition. The prize... to climb a tree!

    That lens bokeh is beautiful.

    It's the lens from my dad's Spotmatic II (but on a Spotmatic F) - the golden colored SMCT 50mm f/1.4 - wide open - I needed the highest shutter speed I could get, I think 1/30 and a deep breath.

    Thanks, Bill. I remember the (dismal) day I shot that scene, and remember sweating my man parts off in the darkroom trying to bring some light to the details of an otherwise dark print.

    Cheers,

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    Congrats! FINEST KIND!
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    Wow, safe tree climbing. It's necessary... I won't let my kids do what I did. But that is the way to go! All fun, no dread for fear of life and limb.

    The competition was judged based on a 1000 pixel image posted on their website so they were quite surprised when I presented them with a mounted 12" x 16" print.


    I made very slow progress climbing up the rope. Meanwhile, a ten year old girl on the other side of the tree went to the top and back down again three times whilst I struggled!

    I started taking my three boys hiking in the redwoods when they were 4 yrs old or so. Between climbing trees in the woods and rocks at the beach, they got quite a bit of experience, both in climbing and in falling (okay, their mom was never with us...LOL!). All the broken bones and injuries requiring stitches happened at home or at the playgrounds of the school and parks...not out in the 'wilds'!
