Natural landscapes: a walk in the forest

AMONG THE COTTONWOODS, GLENBOW RANCH PROVINCIAL PARK, NEAR COCHRANE, ALBERTA

There was almost something abstract about the lines of snowy cottonwoods. Add a winding path into it and the potential for a meaningful picture becomes obvious. I did one series of exposures with no one in it, then added me into the next series. It took four or five tries, with me running back and forth, to get me in the right spot. Then I kept me in colour and transformed the rest of the scene into black-and-white to make the overall composition more memorable (I hope). I’ve tried this Photoshop technique before.
