Drift Wood in Pond

Rising From The Pond, Three Artsy Views

This dead tree trunk with its roots sticking up was laid out in a pond where a dike made a sharp turn giving me different options for angles and reflections.

The first view shows off the “spines” made of the tree limbs and green reflections from a tree line, making the whole thing look like a prehistoric monster.

From a bit further on the spines are hidden, there was no background reflection and I got the impression of antlers.

From the far side, reeds at the edge of the pond came into play and the shifting clouds made an interesting reflection.

  1. Wow I say!
    Captivating and dramatic treatments, the same subject looking distinct in each!
    The Antler appears to be floating in space!
    The one with the colorful reflections on the water is the one that gets my vote.
    Nice work Ellen!
