Sometimes I find shots that I do not remember taking.
No, I don't think it is senility yet, been finding these for years.
This is about as far back in the marsh as my boat will go. Even here, I am glad I have a gallon of water and 55gallons of bugspray to survive.
I didn't even give this image a second look on the first culling.
In print, it has an interesting 3d quality I do not often see. The lighter trees seem to come in and out of the image.
Works for me, I like finding a surprise every once in a while.

Really a moody image, Gary. Definitely nostalgic for me. It is interesting how you can go back and find these gems isn't it? I think maybe right after a shoot we zone in on one or two that at the time we thought were the shot of the day. And maybe they were. But doesn't mean the rest are culls.

Thanks for the kind words.
I think what makes the trees move for me is the lighter thinner trees are actually in front of the darker thicker trees.
I somewhat assume the trees are about the same size, and thus the smaller ones should be further away, yet they are closer.
My mind plays interesting games as I am looking at this leaning on my easel.
I love images like this.
Then lots of little gems like the little red leaves.
Art is everywhere, we just have to look.

I like it - nice "drawing in" effect. As Dan says we often are attracted to a few shots on a trip and then forget the others. This is a good argument against aggressive culling.
