Ginko leaves blanket a tree

Years ago, I worked a NIU (Northern Illinois University) Every year for about one day each autumn, this sole ginko tree would shed its leaves gently overnight, and they would settle around the base of the tree, swaddling it in a blanket of greens & yellows. Taken with a Hasselblad 500 C/M with 100mm f/3.5 Planar lens on Kodachrome 64.

Gnarly bark leaning to the morning sun

A super-tele shot (1000mm) right at sunrise of a stand of elm trees as they seem to lean to greet the day along the Rock river.

Impressionism Tree

The wonderful thing about meandering is that allows for experimentation & accident – without worrying about assignment constraints. This image was actually just an accident. While out scouting locations, I accidentally hit the shutter button several times while fiddling with the camera, and this was one of the results.
