“Erosion and dead trees”, not exactly the most inviting title I could have come up with, but at least it’s accurate. From my continuing series of photos from Waimea Canyon, Kaua’i, I couldn’t decide whether I preferred this image in colour or monochrome, so I’ll present both and let you the reader decide. The canyon of course provides the opportunity for the grand vista type of shots and I did take a few of those, but sometimes it’s interesting to look at some of the “smaller landscape” images too.
Also, I’ve decided to increase the size of the images presented from 800 pixels to 900 pixels, hopefully the images display well at this larger size. If anyone finds a problem with the change, please let me know.
In colour, there’s a nice contrast between the greens and the orange/reds of the soil.
In monochrome, I like the contrast provided by the bleached white dead timber. As I’ve done a bit lately, the black and white image got my 4020_4020 toning preset treatment in Lightroom.
I know I’ve been flogging this a bit lately, but there is a rapidly growing community over at Google +, plenty of interesting stuff to see and interesting people posting. The system really seems to be photography friendly so if you haven’t already got involved with it, I urge you to take a look! Join me on Google Plus!
Oh, and while I’m at it, this might be a good time to boost a couple of my online friends as well. They’re both on Google + and have been great supporters of my blogging efforts too, so do yourself a favour and check them out.
Lisa, aka, “Red Willow”. A talented photographer from Canada who also manages to combine her photographs with well constructed and thoughtful prose as well! and,
Chip “Roketman” Allen. Living in them thar hills in Virginia, USA, it’s been interesting watching Chip’s photographic development. Additionally he writes with an incorrigible sense of humour which, combined with a fuelled up 4 wheel drive, helps keep him one step ahead of his “horses” and his fry pan wielding wife (whom I suspect is actually a perfectly reasonable woman!)
