Staying with the “enchanted” forest theme from fable, we came across this tree which appeared to be guiding us along the way. Pointing us in the right direction! Covered in moss and lichen, it was still growing strong, albeit at an angle. The gnarly old roots still digging in to keep it firmly anchored. Lovely little nooks and crannies providing refuge for mythical creatures and a small palm for company completing the look.
This is another of the images we used the copper toner on in conjunction with the sepia which lends it a more pleasing warm brown tone.
The dappled sunlight the day this was shot did make for some challenging exposures. The eye doesn’t always see what eventually ends up on the film. In this case the exposures created quite a challenge because of the dappled sunlight, however, I’m quite pleased with this overall result.
I took this with the Mamiya 645 Pro TL, 80 mm Mamiya 1:2.8 Sekor Lens, Ilford HP5 @ 200 developed in D76. Timing and technical details can be found on my Flickr site (http://www.flickr.com/photos/jcsilverspring1/8478124411/in/photostream)
This was scanned from the silver gelatin print.
Thanks for visiting and enjoy. 🙂
