Another shot in the series I took on Galu Beach, Kenya. The endlessly changing light and stark beauty of the dead trees became a constant source of inspiration.

Quelle abominable bête... Ce corps d'arbre mort à choisi un bel endroit pour se reposer et tu as su en profiter pour prendre une magnifique photo. Bel éclairage sous un ciel nuageux et excellent rendu des couleurs.
Toutes mes félicitations,

Very well. Majestic and powerful image. The best things in a perspective image
Thanks for sharing...

Nice, a new shot of this place. This time with a grey sky giving good contrast versus the beach.
Good composition with wide angle lens to totally include the dead tree and to give depth to the view.

to me it seems the best out of this serie (so far!), great colors, nice low pov. Well done.

magnificent picture with excellent lighting and sharpness which make the tectures very real and tangible. The point of view is terrific, it gives a marvellous sense of depth, places a great part of the dead tree against the luminous grey sky and allows us to see the lovely effect of the soft shadow. The colours are exquisite. Congratulations!
All the best,

Artistic and crystal clear image, top class shot, super work. Thanks Rosemary!

il POV da te scelto per fotografare quest'albero morto è davvero ben scelto.
Con un pò di fantasia, sembra di vedere un piccolo aereo :))
Luce ben gestita e ottima nitidezza.

Hello Rosemary,I enjoy the shape of the well weathered tree trunk and it`s shadows under the brooding sky.
Best regards Les.

You really do have quite a few really great shots with this tree trunk, mostly maybe because of the special light from with the gray sky, creating a very good contrast and the tree is really a nice subject from any different angles. Excellent shot.

Tu as parfaitement exploité cet arbre mort pour réaliser cette superbe photo.

another beautiful shot from this amazing beach. So sharp and exquisitely textured, it looks so dramatic against the stunning backdrop and sky. Superb!
Have a great weekend - Brian.

J'aime beaucoup le point de vue au ras du sol qui donne une belle ampleur à cette branche morte qui profite de la plage pour passer ses derniers jours.
saxo042 (37968) 2012-03-02 8:30
Nature can also be a great artist and here you show as good example. A beautiful "sculpture" and a well seen picture!

Hi my dear Rosemary
Sorry for my late reply, as I am still sufferring from a light pneumonia, getting well very slowly.
Another great impressive nature/secnery shot as your own originalit yand taste! Wonderful widefocus appraoch, that is my favorite one. Far deep exposure focusing is marvelous, contribure clear and sharp image like this. Perfect tight framework and well considered composition as usual! Thanks for your sharinig with finest work and have a good Saturday!

These dead trees on the beach are really impressive. Somehow, the place seems almost unreal with them there. I like this pov and the light was very good also! I see you had some sun light, but the dark sky is fantastic!
Royaldevon (43931) 2012-03-03 0:14
I really can appreciate the attraction that this created for you. From different angles and with different lighting conditions, this weather worn branch could take on any number of forms. Are we being anthropomorphic by saying it appears to be surrendering!. Head bowed and arms erect, that's the impression it gives!.
A wondeful low pov (were there others about to observe you?) which gives this stick its character and sets it dynamically against the sky. The clouds may even have been in your favour to assist in the atmosphere.
Have a good w/e,
agjika (3177) 2012-03-03 7:46
You have chosen the perfect pov. This photo is a sharp and as well exposed as it possibly can be. Beautiufl colours as well.
vasilpro (41661) 2012-03-03 11:22
Superb composition, beautiful low POV and perspective, lovely light and contrast, vivid colors, very good clarity and sharpness, well done and TfS!
Have a nice weekend, Vasilis.
Cricri (126750) 2012-03-03 11:27
C'est toujours spectaculaire les formes de cet arbre mort, excellent détails et lumière, très belle réalisation
Angshu (56760) 2012-03-03 23:07
Your low POV & the perspective you created standing close to the dead wood with your wide lens, creates a visually stunning picture. Superb colour contrast between the grey sky & the pink sand, separated by the turquoise sea. Had it not been for the colours, I would be tempted to 'translate' this to B&W. IMHO, the decadence would be starker in that medium.
PS : Took the liberty of doing a workshop, trying an alternative of your excellent picture. Hope you wouldn't mind!

Hi, Why are the dead trees so attractive for photographers? Impressive view with this menacing sky. Superb composition.
baddori (20161) 2012-03-10 23:12
Artistica , naturale, ed allo stesso concettuale.
Interpretazione artistica delle "tua" Namibia.
Ottimi colori in un contesto quasi irreale.
i9l2y1m8a8t3 (4814) 2012-03-12 17:48
I really like the palette of colors present in this image. The seemingly fine white sand (are they?) against the grey sky with a bit of blue tones are nice, relaxing to the eyes. The perspective and POV are well chosen. Love the result!
