Last Week’s Instagram


Once a week—or every so often—I will display one of my photos captured and/or processed with Instagram over the last week. It’s a way for me to show photography that usually is quite different from my regular work. Except for the technical details beneath the pictures are displayed without any comments, hoping they will stand on their own. But I still very much appreciate any comments you may have.

Facts about the photo: This photo was captured with a Canon Eos 5D with a 24-105 mm lens set at 55 mm, 1/200 second and f/5.0. It was processed in Lightroom and then transferred to my cell phone.

  1. I love this photograph Otto. A light piercing the darkness, my interpretation. Thank you for sharing this!

  2. The trees are lovely: so straight and tall. The sunlight glimmering through them is dramatic. But best of all is that bent elbow of a limb on the far right. With the little foliage fringe on top, it could be an elf’s arm, holding an umbrella. Or, it could be a stovepipe from a hidden, woodsy home. Who knows what’s stoking the fire down there, far away under the ground?

  3. I’m repeating what’s been said, but the light is really gorgeous. I really like the way you captured a swath of the forest itself, rather than focusing on particular trees. Individually they are very beautiful, but in combination there’s a real sense of age and strength. It is a beautiful photo.

  4. I agree with Linda H. (above).
    I love this kind of filtered light and the way the sun appears as a star burst. Its not as easy to capture as it looks – I’ve only managed about 3-4 times.

  5. This one looks like it may have been taken around here, too – whether it was or not, great work as always – I like the way those rays are sometimes in front of the tree trunks, and sometimes behind them –

  6. those smaller branches look like the sprouted out and thought better of going outward and decided to run for the sun 🙂 neat shot… i didn’t know you had a 5D!
