Wind Beneath My Trees

Wind Beneath My Trees, originally uploaded by margotwood.

Ahh summer. Time for sweltering heat and getting crazy sunburned (darn you pale skin!). This photo sums up what summer should look like, in my mind at least. Sort of hazy, hot looking and peaceful. This photo was taken around 7pm over the holiday weekend in some tiny town in Pennsylvania that I went to with friends. Hope you enjoy it or at least makes you less stressed out (that's what it does for me!).

Post Process: Slight cross processing, increased contrast, cropping (in the original the whole bench shadow can be seen but advice from a friend, Cameron Beyl, convinced me to crop it out so the focus remains on the tree and sun flare at the top).

  1. Love the mood in this! Also love the sun flare; I'm a sucker for those.
