A dusky tree, near Quincy.
Like my photos? You can order a print of this one!
This shot came from one of those random unplanned trips, just a few days ago. I was bored one evening, so I went up towards the Quincy Mine (it's so close, and the ruins there really tweak my imagination -- I end up there more often than not when I want to get out of the house). There's a small scenic turnout just before the mine. Just up from the turnout and down from one of the mine's poor rock piles is a big open area with a little two-track through it. I'd never been there before.
I had a great time poking around the open area, seeing some old ruins, flowers, overlooks, and even a few whitetails. This dead tree is right in the middle of the little field, with irises all around it and a great view of Houghton and Hancock. I did a good bit of editing to increase the silhouette effect -- it wasn't quite that dark yet, and the wind was cold.
That's the news from here. You can actually post comments on this blog -- unlike my old Troupe one. Please feel free to do so!
