This photograph was the result of a walk in a place we had never been to before. I was not sure what I’d see and was not going to carry massive amounts of gear to cover every possibility. I ended up not having much of the right equipment. We saw wonderful insects, great landscapes etc., all of which required a tool I had left behind. That did not stop me from trying but the day’s results were poor and the photograph above is one of the few worth keeping. I have taken to looking at many of my photographs in Lightroom in black and white mode, just to see if there is potential. This photograph looked fine in black and white and in color until I started processing it and discovered that the range of light and color was just not working out. It looked more like an overgrown jungle than a forest. In black and white the water took on a more central role and I thought that was more pleasing to the eye.
