Solo Tree


August 9, 2004

Here's another from the quarry visit this weekend. This tree appears to have its own throne and for some reason, was spared from the clear-cutting which exists all around it. Very odd..

I managed to get a gallery online of images from the DoLime Quarry I visited on the weekend with Rob.

I think it's one of my better ones to date — I was quite happy with how it turned out. Unfortunately I'm getting behind on other things — I've still got the Whitby Psych gallery to put together.. one of these days.

Stunning tonal range

Wow this is incredible. I agree that it's the best thing you've put up in a few days. As the other commentor said, the b&w range is fantastic. Well done.

Maybe it's a magic tree with magic powers and the only way to bring it down is to find its one weak spot. Maybe all the bulldozers and workers got killed by the tree because by now I'm convinced that the tree knows kung-fu. Maybe I need to lay down for a little while. :) .. Just maybe.

Love the shot. I'd also like to see a coloured version of it but the black and white makes more evil.

Fantastic! It's giving me "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" flashbacks.

"This means something."

Very cool photos. Nicely done! Love the gallery for this location.

That's gorgeous, it's almost as if there are two exposures, one for the sky one for the foreground, very dramatic.

Beautiful Shot Kendall. An awesome range of blacks and whites. The sky is so dramatic and the lone tree just adds the perfect magic and mystery to the shot.

!!! Thats a great shot. One of those 8x10 quality babies.

Wow, great one, Kendall. I love the dark patch under the lowest cloud to the left of the mound. It really makes it look like a museum diorama of unusual phenomena.

This shot really jumps out at you. Crisp. Stunning photograph Kendall!

very strange subject matter, very well captured.. i enjoyed the quarry gallery lots too

Wow, that's a lot of comments today - I think you guys have set a new record here. :)

Thanks kindly everyone! I'm quite pleased with how this one worked out - the bizarre subject matter certainly helped. I think this is also one of my better black & white conversions. After all, I'm still learning...

Wow, stunning image! Very surreal.

Fantastic -- where the heck did you find this one? the sky is amazing...

very dramatic. i like it. though i think a soft focus/filter would make it look better. just my opinion. :)

Hauntingly beautiful picture!

Aug 15, 2004 at 4:30 pm

Wow! Very crisp and striking!

too much photoshop!

Holy crap, this is gorgeous!

One of your best. I wish more of the upper branches were silloetted by the white clouds.
