Another splendid collaboration piece featuring Susan McDougall. Unfortunately the width limit Tumblr imposes doesn’t do this version justice so make sure to click on the image to view it larger. Susan writes,
"This is probably a motif that I would return to again and again. It’s especially effective with all of those dramatic clouds. Personally, I might want to shoot this as a panorama with a few verticals stitched together - huge file, I know! A few of the edits I made were emphasizing the thin gold line of the field that the trees are "sitting on", heightening the contrast in some areas, eliminating some of the clouds along the edge of the frame in the blue patch, and trying to reclaim some of the definition in the bright centre patch among the clouds. In the ‘panorama’, I lightened two of the trees so as to allow the eye to pass beyond the tree barrier to the clouds beyond. I know this cropped version is not sharp but this is my vision for this particular landscape. I need to find my own row of trees!"
