Crossing Branches


A lot of the trees in the Yesler Swamp seem to grow more horizontally than vertically. I like the way all the trunks, branches, branchlets, and twigs fill the field of view here, sometimes looking more two-dimensional than three. (Technical note: it’s hard to keep all that fine detail from getting washed out in the bright sky. I rely heavily on Lightroom 4’s Highlights slider to recover the fine lines, then the Whites slider to prevent the sky from looking too grey.)
