Fallen Oak Tree

I like the idea of these two pictures being together, or side by side in a portfolio, I was out photographing on Vancouver Island last month, and I was visiting on of my favourite places, Tower Point, part of Witty's Lagoon Regional Park and saw this rather large section of oak tree that had simply broken off from the main trunk that was on a steep rocky overhang above the ocean, the broke off section landed very nicely on the small pebble beach below, I though it presented interesting photo possibilities. Images were made with a 4 x 5 View Camera and a 270mm lens (medium telephoto).

Great find - While I understand the idea of the two images being shown together, I find the less descriptive nature of the second to be more evocative. Very nice.

Thanks, Joel, I always appreciate it when viewers find my blog and take the time to post a comment !, I like both images, but have a slight preference for the second one.
