As soon as the weather gets better (the rain just keeps on falling), I'll get out to get some shots!

If only it were the rain preventing me this month. "Trees." Sounds straightforward, and simple, something everyone can do, and being that I live in a rural area, plenty of subjects around, but alas, I'm stuck. The most difficult assignment thus far for me. :shock: I've taken well over 50 shots of trees, and nothing spectacular. In fact, nothing I'm unwilling to send to the recycle bin. So good luck to all of you with creativity. If I experience a moment of that perhaps I can post something this month. :oops:

I feel your pain. I just joined the group and was excited for my first posting but I'm coming up with nothing! Zip. Nil.

Inspiration will strike, right?

Me too even though deciduous trees are one of my favourite winter subjects. Still, no pain no gain... :wink:

I hope inspiration will strike. I'm surrounded by trees and have been to four seperate locations today. :? I have layed on the ground and shot up, acquiring a spectacular abundance of ants in the process, hiked through the woods, with only briar scratches for my trip, and ..well not satisfied. Yet. :wink:

Try going to forest places like that. Also try to get strange angles that you wouldn't normally use.

well, it is only the 8th, so we still got time...am hopeful that my trek on Sunday will be as wonderful as I am imagining...and if it is, I am gonna be so excited...just to show you the magnificence of this tree...I hope I can capture it well enough...part of the fun of this whole assignment IS finding that creative bolt of creativity...looking at the ordinary in a different light. I thought this one would be easy, too...but it sure has me goin in circles...

good hunting...

patti

ps...to bad Roy posted that tree in da duck o' da day...in hindsight, that one was pretty funny. whoo hoo...Roy, go do that again.

Attention: ...parismontreal, ...EricD ...and ...Razvan

Thanks for entering folks but all three of you have exceeded the 500 pixel on the longest dimension guideline. Please edit your posts to point to correctly sized versions. Thank you.

Bob.

Thank you! It was rather a snapshot,or a fast photo. I was walking in the park with a friend when I saw this girl relaxing. I made like 5 photos in less that 1 minute,I didn't wanted her to notice me. (some people can be annoyed by this action)

As the song goes "Rain rain go away come again another day."Or at least until i can get a decent shot of a tree. I myself am finding,like many of you are, being held back by the rain. Why is it i ask myself, whilst im at work all day the sun seems to be out and everything is bright, and the minute the workday is over, and im ready camera in hand, the skies open up :x even though i keep looking on the bright side,i see nothing but the wet :? grrrrrrrrrrrrrr naniani :D
