Denny Creek and the Log
This morning a friend, my daughter and I went out for a *delightful* morning hike to Denny Creek. It was like having dessert for breakfast. Photographically, nothing was coming together. On the way back, we saw this small waterfall just upstream of us. I walked up to it - the falls emptied into a small pool. In the pool, a large heavy log...barely floating. I tried to move the log into the frame. My friend and daughter caught up with me and helped me push it further into the pool so I could take my photo. The current ended up jamming the log such that it ended up blocking the shot that I wanted. I had to rethink the photo and came up with this composition. By now, it was mid-morning and the lighting was really harsh. I really wanted this hike to end up with a usable photo. I ended up converting it to black and white. I like how it makes me feel solitude, but not loneliness.
