Dancing Trees

Dancing Trees - Alpa STC, IQ180, 1s, ISO 35.

Another one from Namibia from over 5 years ago, this time in black & white.  I made this image in pre-sunrise as well but because of the direction I was shooting, the sky was a lot brighter and I remember deciding even then to push the exposure to go high key.  I prefer this composition to the one from yesterday because this one is much more balanced (in the ratio of dune to sky in the background) and with the two trees in the middle, there’s a bit of pseudo symmetry.  The title ‘dancing trees’ comes from my older daughter who says the forms of the tree reminds her of dancers.  I am adding this image to my portfolio on my site: https://www.akimagery.com/namibia.
