Another haiku candidate…? Signs of emptiness and seasonal change.
Twice, I almost captured the shining forth (epiphany) of the single, golden-leafed tree amidst the gray emptiness, mentioned in my last post. Here are 2 examples. Possible candidates for the haiku project…?
While traveling down the highway on Christmas morning, I was struck by the occasional radiance of the odd tree with golden leaves still on it, leaping out from amidst the gray empty branches of its surroundings. I shot at 1/320th, which mostly froze motion at a distance but not necessarily in the nearer foreground. The result is landscapes that look like they’re moving past me at high speeds (instead of the reverse). It was rare that I actually captured the single tree I was aiming at.
