Nancy Cove Tree

Nancy Cove - Tree - 2009

I took this shot on a wild day at Rottnest. After riding around the island, we rode past a landscape painter busily working away at this canvas. IT was a kind of hollow feeling, thinking that what this man is trying to achieve in one day could be shot within a few seconds. What’s more, if the colours aren’t right for my picture, i can edit them to make them however I want, whilst any mistakes he make will almost defiently be visible on the final piece. With this in mind, I tried looking for some more creative compositions rather than just a quick look and shoot. I found this windswept tree a short time later.

I photoshopped it quite a bit, sort of unrealistic but it encapsulates the barren, desolate atmosphere that day.
