  1. Near Foyers Falls. The river can be seen on the left.

  2. The fluffy green of the pine needles top left complements the colour of bracken and leaf litter well. The intersecting slopes and trunks play off against the colour. A very pleasing view down to the river.

    Colin would not want me to talk about squirrels, so I shall desist.

  3. Brings very strongly to mind the scenery of northern Georgia — specifically the winding road to my sister’s former home at the top of a small mountain there. The sense of height is well caught.

    With that powerful association, it is hard for me to be objective, but I thank you for the memories of that lovely place!

  5. The html for the img tag was munged. Fixed it. Looks fine now.

  6. I am delighted to finally see this one. I was one of those viewing a thin white line and missing out on this. This produces such a powerful sense of the way the trees tower above puny humans. I find it intriguing to study the way the trunk lean out from the center while pushing back down to the bracken and pine needles.

  7. It takes several viewings to bring all this together. I tend to see scenes like this when mountain biking so this has a slight scary element to it.

    Verticals strongly root the image to the ground, subtle hint of the river and a suggestion of another path directly ahead.

  8. I enjoy this as much as your previous three landscapes. Looking down a steep incline held together both physically and pictorially by tall trees.
    This picture tells me how important trees are for the landscape, again pictorially and physically. As they are finding out in Victoria now after the fires, even the smallest amount of rain is causing large scale erosion of the valuable top soil.

  9. A really powerful image and also an idea about a different way of photographing woodland.

    In using the slope to create a top down view you have managed to put across the idea of the scale of the trees.

    Right. Off to buy a ladder…
