07 Jul 15. A couple months back we had a pretty good storm pass through the area, and when it was over my cousin's front view had a new piece of yard art courtesy of the waves and surge. From the looks of things it is going to be around for a while, and over the past few months I've been grabbing a shot now and then. This is the first one I actually thought was any good, so I played around with it to see what I might be able to accomplish. This was shot from a lower level than most of the others and getting the tug with barge on either side of one branch of the root with the root sorta serving as a pointer seemed to work O.K. Plus, with your eye following the "pointer" and bumping into the clouds, once again illustrating our convergence area, I'm hoping that they bounce your eye back to the log. And that your eye then once again runs up the log to repeat the process keeping you looking.
I took the original shot, adjusted for max tonality, emphases the details a bit, and then converted that to B&W. Nikon D300s; 18 - 200; Aperture Priority; ISO 200; 1/250 sec @ f /14.
