    Same trees. Similar weather. Viewed from opposite sides.

    Nice having locations with good graphics and close enough to get to when the weather cooperates.

    Winter means frozen pond and slough so getting to the Western side was easy. No mud to sink into. 20 below and colder helps with being able to walk across the pond for the angle I wanted. Still have to be careful if going through cattails as they don’t get solid and it is easy to break through thin ice there. Not deep, but cold and wet and uncomfortable in the sub zero temperatures.

    Many times I check to see how things appear when looking back. Two views of the same subject can be very different.

    I like the first image.  The other image detracts by the sunlight. My eye goes to the bright spot.  I like the other where you can easily explore what is behind the trees.

    Of the two I also prefer the first. Still, it’s worth exploring alternate perspectives! Don’t remember the name of the photographer who first suggested lining up your camera on an image, then turning 180° and making an image from there.

    I see what Kevin is saying, just as the books have been saying for decades. For me, the image works. The two show together. Same trees viewed from opposite sides. Not standing with the tripod and looking back but walking on the frozen slough and cattails to view the dead trees from the other side.

    A small project I am working on from time to time.
