Great feather 2007-09-16 8:01

This is one of those gorgeous dream-like scenes that we just have to take advantage of when we get the chance. Fortunately you had your camera with you on your way to work. The atmosphere you have captured is wonderful with the glorious sunbeams, the shadows and the almost-silhouetted trees. I hope you didn't keep your students waiting too long.

Default To feather: light through the trees...

Hi Kath,thank you very much for your gracious words. I took several photographs here, and I wasn't completely happy with either the initial image, or the little bit of postprocessing I performed. Giving this image a warmer, reddish glow helps the colors of light filtering through the trees, but the patch of blue in the sky does not have the color that I preferred. I finally submitted this as a completely random choice. Five different viewers looking at the original photos may have selected four others instead. I was a few minutes late to class, since I took the time to set up a tripod. When I was a student there was an unwritten code saying that the students would have to wait five minutes per earned degree that the professor possessed. They would have to wait 20-minutes or me, but in the psyche of the modern student, I doubt if they would wait more than five minutes before abandoning class.
