Threesome by PhilipMatthews Threesome by PhilipMatthews
"treesome" would be a nice tittle too :D

That is me hanging on some high trees on a foggy forest.
Went to Peninha - Sintra to shoot some misty and foggy photos, and end on front of the objective.

I chose a low angle to be able to transmit how tall were those trees.. The atmosphere was amazing.

______________________________________

Technique:

Photographing with fog is a bit difficult. The auto exposure measuring can trick you.. causing overexposed or underexposed photos. I had to use Manual mode like I always do.. and experiment a bit.

Using the tripod was essencial, because the light under those tall trees was so poor.

Just placed the tripod on the floor, used selftimer (10 seconds) and climb the slippery trees.

I shot this one in RAW, and before converting to Jpeg, I selected some cold tones in the White balance bar.

"The air is changing. Into the abyss once more, I suppose. *sigh* It never ends, does it?"

This reminds me of a type of hero. The normal guy, thrust into a journey of dimensions, finally returns home. But, resting in a tree, he senses change. The air crackles, the skies alight, the summons comes again. However weary are his limbs, the call is not to be denied, and so he follows.

(also note I'm reading a Pendragon book at the moment, so I'm already in that mind)

Normally I wouldn't try and make myself comment on a picture simply because I'm horrible with words, but this photo is beautiful. If I go on, I'll just be saying the exact same things everyone has said up to this point, but it's all true. I'm just in awe of how breathtakingly beautiful this shot is. This is a well deserved DD. Congratulations!
