I am indebted to two friends for assistance with this post Rod Wainwright ARPS and Les Loosemore ARPS. Rod sent me the Aristotle quote and Les wrote to me about “the lens appropriately focussed on your next masterpiece”.
When I thanked Rod for the quote I said I would have to think about an appropriate picture to go with the words. This one came out of the blue.
Yesterday evening I went looking for more wild flowers to take, I knew where some are located in Netham Park in Bristol. Netham Park was the location of my first digital Lith print about five years ago. I also had the same lens on the camera a 70-200mm f 2.8. The setting sun provided the perfect back lighting.
By deliberate defocussing at f2.8 I am left with shape and tone – to me the elemental significance of trees.
A big hello to all the new followers of my blog this week.
