Weekly Photo Challenge: Angular

When my family first visited the Humbolt State University campus last spring, we were trying to find our way around. We happened on this sculpture and I instantly loved it. This is the first thing that came to mind when I saw this week’s photo challenge theme. Luckily, there was a break in the rain and time to take a photograph of it this weekend.

My main focus during the break in the weather, was to finish up a project I was working on for a friend. The community forest was muddy and dripping with the last of the raindrops. I walked happily in my tall rain boots drinking in the deep shades of the forest. As I was leaving the woods, this scene of broken limbs and trunks stood before me. There was a severe angularity to their joint shape. And a true similarity to the sculpture I photographed earlier that day. A lovely connection.

    1. Thank you! I added a small radial filter to the path to give it a sense of moving into the woods. I am so glad you caught that šŸ™‚
      I love these woods, I get my wonder back when I visit here!

      1. I saw the effect on someone’s “before and after friday” post last week. Where they used a small radial filter at the back of the horizon, the effect was so great. It really drew your eye into the image. So, I thought I would see if it worked on the path, I am so happy you picked up on it, it works šŸ™‚

    1. Thank you, Chris. I wish the lighting was better to show off the sculpture, it is a very interesting piece. And I agree, there is a nice echo between the two. I was happy to come across this connection yesterday.

Please take a moment, comments encouraged.
