I think a lot of times we tend to miss the smaller details especially when shooting nature. We are always chasing these huge gigantic landscapes, a sunrise/sunset scenic with alpenglow hitting some mountain peak somewhere. You know the scene, I know the scene but in doing so we often miss the smaller things that are in and around us. The more intimate details. Why? I think it is because we have to retrain our eyes to see it. Often times it isn't something which generally jumps out at you right away like a huge landscape often does and it can take some time to see forest through the trees (no pun intended...I know, bad lol) however once you do, things start to open up for you. You start to notice the smaller things, patters in tree branches, negative spaces, the luminosity of different colors and how light plays into things. You start to see things very different and once you do you find yourself looking for it a great deal more often. So it was this past Autumn for me as a photographer. I found myself spending a great deal more time catching things which others might have missed. Photographing things I was thankful which I saw. This is one of those shots.
