"There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs." Ansel Adams

Finally got it!

Well I have photographed this location about 4 times now I think and never walked away with something im happy with. Now I have. I had been waiting for the last 8 months or so for the right conditions while I was free. It had to have been raining and still be overcast and during Autumn so the floor was covered in autumn leaves.

I love this tree! It’s root system is just amazing!

It had to have rained heavily before I would get my shot because otherwise the tree would be blotchy n white like my previous captures which I didnt like.

I have tried so many angles on this tree over the years and hope this one does it justice. My last pano of it didnt seem to capture its sheer size but now with some trees visible in the background there is a bit of scale which I think is what it needed.

I spent about 2 hours there today in the light rain which was awesome. It did poor down for a while but that didnt last long. The rain makes everything so vibrant and the leaves were just stunning.

I have another shot from here that I will post up tomorrow that I kinda like too! πŸ™‚

My girlfriend Sara loves this spot so I hope my shot gets her approval πŸ˜›

This is a bunch of images stitched (bout 7 or 8) on the mk2, iso50 @ Ζ’22, circular polariser.
