Natural landscapes: a walk in the forest
AMONG THE COTTONWOODS, GLENBOW RANCH PROVINCIAL PARK, NEAR COCHRANE, ALBERTA
There was almost something abstract about the lines of snowy cottonwoods. Add a winding path into it and the potential for a meaningful picture becomes obvious. I did one series of exposures with no one in it, then added me into the next series. It took four or five tries, with me running back and forth, to get me in the right spot. Then I kept me in colour and transformed the rest of the scene into black-and-white to make the overall composition more memorable (I hope). I’ve tried this Photoshop technique before.

Wonderful photo, Frank, the snowy path and bright red coat are a great contrast. Enjoyed hearing how you accomplished this work of art.
I love this! Nothing soothes the soul like a walk in the woods.
Reminded me of red riding hood.
The mental image of you dashing through the snow to get this is quite funny. great snap!
