Tree in the Lake

Posted by Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 28 March 2014 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

This is the last in a series of photos of trees that I took in the English Lake District a few weeks ago. This one is a tree at Derwent Water that has toppled over into the lake. Soil erosion has exposed most of the root system but the tree is still thriving.

Like what you see here and are interested in photographic composition?.....the blog section of my website now has a complete set of 5 articles covering my personal approach to the subject: Ian Bramham Photography - Blog

@Babzy: Thanks Babzy - I really liked that long root coming back into the foreground.

Hans ter Horst from Dippach, Luxembourg

Fabulous again.
I noticed that you contrast is getting lower lately and I do like that, gives the photo sort of an ethereal feeling that a harder image wouldn't have.

@Hans ter Horst: Hi Hans - You're right. I think my post-processing and b&w conversion has been evolving recently and certainly I've been working with printing more in mind but what I'm finding is that for some shots, like this one for example I'm using less contrast than previously but on others (particularly architectural ones) I've been using more contrast than before.

Gérard Beullac from Paris, France

The subject is unique !
I find interesting the exhange you have with Hans as I also noticed, for myself, a tendancie to apply less contrast on my recent pictures.

@Gérard Beullac: Hi Gérard. It's an interesting subject isn't it and over the last year or so since I've been concentrating more on what images look like as prints I've felt like I've gradually been making progress again with my photography.

We feel the Mc KENNA inspiration, but after you have to realise it!

Even up-rooted the tree is magnificent and absolutely beautiful. I admire the soft grey tones of your image and the exterior framing.
