I’ve been on a bit of an abstract kick, ever since Shannon and I made it a point to try them last month. This photo was taken out at Grizzly Peak Winery in Ashland, OR. The owner and staff are super friendly and helpful. After tasting a couple of great tempranillo’s, I wandered outside by myself to check out the property.
I was on pain medicine that day, for an existing injury, which already helped me kind of see in an abstract way haha. I may have been a little loopy is what I’m saying. Anyways, I liked all of the trees I was seeing out on the lawn. At first glance, they were growing randomly, and it was hard to find a composition that really worked. Then, as I walked around the trees, I noticed there was some order to the chaos.
In the image you can make out 3 stands of trees going from front to back, or left to right. It was only at this angle, that I could finally see some order. Kinda makes you think that you can apply this little lesson to your life. You gotta have the right perspective, in order to make sense of things.
This image was created in camera on the iPhone, using LongExpoPro. With LongExpoPro, you can choose your shutter speed to create long exposures, even during the day. I believe this was a one second exposure, which allowed me to pan up with the iPhone while it was open. Then I edited with Snapseed and Mextures to lighten the image a bit.
