it’s really strange how i came about getting this particular shot. i had seen this old tree with some ferns and moss on it, loved how many would think it was dead, was actually still giving life. so as im setting up my shot trying to get just the right composition for my title.
im looking thru the viewfinder and “he” comes into focus. I am meaning the wood spirit,
legend has it only a select few are allowed to see them, as they oversee the forests. i feel honored and priviledged to have been able to view this remarkable character. i found this in (of course) my mountains, only if you’re with me will i show you the location of him.
now everytime i see these shots, i always see “him”, can you?
I shot this in sepia, BW and color, NO conversions, (aka changed camera settings) my personal fav is this sepia, i am adding the other two versions for those who like color and BW. if anyone would like a print or anything like that of the other versions, contact me and ill make them available for public view and sale :) the link above is for anyone wanting to read more about the legend of the wood spirits, alot of wood carvers carve his face and sell in this area.
