The way the tree is bent makes it look like it might have melted, or as if the wood has flowed like lava to it’s resting place, or like extruded clay that breaks at leather-hard dryness. The grain of the wood was visible with the natural colours and sunlight but became really oozy when I removed the colours. I kept the vibrancy, without the pigment, and left the contrast at mid-rage to minimize the pixelation I feel occurs with too much contrast. I took this shot in the late afternoon with the sunset throwing fun shadows on everything. I’m not sure of the framing; my eye wants to cut the image in two horizontally and enjoy each sub-image individually.
