Wise Old Tree

I debated with myself a long time whether to make the colors so washed out and vibrant, but in the end I felt it suited a magical, fairy tale look.

Lots of debating with myself went into this photo. I still am unsure. It’s very bright, washed out and vibrant – maybe too much. In the end, I felt this was the best route to go, but, like I said, even right now, I’m still unsure if it was the best result. Something just doesn’t click with me.

My Cousin and I went on a photo excursion to Walborn Resevoir in Stark County, Ohio(USA). It was a relatively easy trail compared to the Cuyahoga trails we had hiked.

At one point we lost track of exactly where we were on the map and with no more signs we aimlessly wandered a bit. Eventually we came out from under the canopy of trees into a small “road” mowed-down between two rows of trees. It was something out of charming movies like Anne of Green Gables.

While deliberating on what to do, I stopped to look at the trees and felt this had so much character and was like an old wise-man of trees.

I finally just went with a bright, washed out look because it felt like it was a magical tree from Cinderella or some other fantasy world.
