This photo was taken on Monday as I was out running errands in the pouring rain. The fog was at higher elevations.
Camera settings and post-processing: Shot with the Canon EOS 5D and the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS lens with polarizing filter at 90mm, ISO 200, f/2.8, shutter 1/320s. Adjusted white balance, basic curves adjustment, color balancing.
Thank you for visiting Durham Township!
Beautiful low-contrast, warm-toned work. The delicate yet complex form of the tree is really something in front of the busy background. Excellent crop as well.
Beautiful shot! I like the contrast between the tree and the foggy background.
Very smooth et zen shot. I love this one.
Beautifully captured blooming of a crabapple tree. The mist gives nice boost to perspective. I like it a lot.
Veiled in fog the forest does surround
This tree cloaked in pink, a sight quite profound.
Given the abundance of flowers
And the current spring showers,
The crabapple harvest should abound.
Wonderful shot, I absolutely love the lighting.
This is the most beautiful photo I have ever seen. Absolutely lovely!
Absolutely beautiful shot - the atmosphere and lighting are both superb
What a beautiful composition ! I've seen somebody who says it's a little bit zen, I agree :-)
Pretty much all I can say is WOW!
I have enjoyed your photo's for a while now and I think this is a beautifully composed photo.
Moody and beautiful. Makes me want to live where you are :)
How can you shoot such excellent picture while running errands in the pouring rain?
wow - atmosphere and mystery! This is stunning Kathleen. One of your best for me in a while :)
Hauntingly beautiful-love the mood of this.
Velvety smooth and luscious
this is beautiful! I wanna sit under it and have a picnic!
Gorgeous, what an atmosphere. A beautiful image.
Oh my goodness. This is beautiful. Love it.
The trees in the background w/ all there tops are so beautiful .A large % of ours are snapped due to the 12/10 ice storm .
Love the pastel feel of this image, the mist/dust really adds to that. Excellent!!
I love all your images but this one is hard to beat. Beautiful! Tone and exposure and setting, phew it is just wonderful.
The contrast of colors, the grainy texture of the fog against the tree's own soft texture just fit together so well. You never cease to amaze me...this shot is so beautiful with a slight bit of eeriness. Just wonderful.
WOW! I wish I could say oh I was just running errands and... ;)))))))
Otherworldly. Tree of Life. Taking it to the nest level. I recently spent a few hours looking through a Digital Artist publication. Personally I liked the matte paintings best and this "real image" sets a mood that would easily have earned a "Masters" rating by the staff. (I guess the 30 preceding comments attest to the same conclusion.)
I've also been watching the "Planet Earth" series this week so this shot fits right in quality-wise......just not the same planet apparently. (Have to change the name of that tree though Kathleen, you can't have a vision like this and call it a "crabapple" anything.....really!)
Thanks for the trip to where ever it is you've taken us.
Fabulous! The pink against the grey, the large trees mimicking the shape of the dogwood. Perfect exposure and light.
Wow! This is truly wonderful. The tree is made even more lovely by the rain and fog. I love the warm tone too. I think this one made my week!
lovely tones, very nice. /J
Beautiful! Love the pink of the flowers and the fog. Stunning
I remember that tree ! I've seen it in my dreams ;D
A true lovely picture !
Wow, impossible good. Love the contrast in the colors !
Beautiful tones and composition. One of the best pictures in your gallery.
WOW....great picture... It just speaks to my heart!! Gorgeous!
Kathleen this is stunning .... I need to get over there to do some photography.
Another absolutely gorgeous shot. I love how colour is restricted to the lower half and how effective the green is with the pink, and the little tree is contextualized with the monochrome upper portion which bears its own interest of branches in the fog. Beautiful shot!
I am seriously in awe... I haven't seen such beautiful photographs... ever. I am a photographer also, but after looking at your work, I am overwhelmed with the feeling that I will never be that good. You are so talented! Thank you for sharing it with me.
