The Tree (that got me stuck in the mud) by La-Vita-a-Bella The Tree (that got me stuck in the mud) by La-Vita-a-Bella
If you didn't read my latest journal, well, I don't blame you. It was probably the longest journal I've ever posted...which was mostly about me getting my car stuck in the mud because I wanted to take a picture of this tree. Had my infrared camera not gone glitchy on me, you would've been seeing this shot in infrared. Instead, I had to use my DSLR, which I think was the better photographic choice anyway.

Hi I really like your work. And was wondering do you have a need for enlarging your work. My company offers high res. reproduction services on a variety of print media.
I look forward to your reply. Thanks

i like the tree, it is a shame your infrared didn't work that would have been pretty.

I did end up with a slightly blurry image of it with my infrared, but it really didn't compare to this version. Sometimes you just don't know which will be better until you see them both. :)
