A once mighty tree, now lying guard over the cascades below the main swimming hole at Cedar Creek.

Shot earlier this month while giving a tour to Kane, Matt, Lance and Josh.

    And (what bad way to start a sentence) a tour it was too, so much fun, can't wait for the next one Dave ;)
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Kane :) This was the big pano I shot, but then in review realised it looked best as a 4x5 large format shot, so I cropped it down.
  • [ Kane ] said:
    Oh, ok, I really liked the pano when I saw it on your computer, although there was a foot in it ;)
  • David de Groot said:
    Aye, that would have been my foot as I tried to stay steady. Darn wide lenses ;-)
    I wasn't entirely happy with the framing of the full pano, should have swung further left, rather than right, but you get that sometimes.

    great title to the photo.. there's something really eerie about this photo. must be the sepia processing, but it's moody and makes me think!
    i love it! :-)

    Yes! Thanks Bennie, that's exactly the feel I was going for. :)
