The Forrest and the Trees

Like many photographers, I have been fascinated with trees for some time, but it is only recently that I’m feeling comfortable with my renderings. My approach has been to look for the patterns created by the trees. In the upper image I found this arrangement of three (three is good). The way the trees are bending in different directions give me the feeling that they are dancing to some unheard  early electronic music from the 70’s. In the lower image I saw the contrast of the grasses in front of the forest behind. Again, there is a subtle dance to these trees. I used black and white to show off the contrasts of the yellow leaves against the rest of the tones in the scene.
