12th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Maple Grove Giants
These old, giant maples are beautiful and imposing, with enormous branches covered in hanging moss. The entire scene before me was so beautiful, but also so chaotic, and I wanted to simplify the view. Using a telephoto at a wide open aperture, I created a series of images in a panoramic style to provide the perspective I envisioned, and to isolate the subject from the busy background foliage.
