When I was at Effigy Mounds about 3 weeks ago to see what I could get with autumn colors, one of the things I struggled with was getting pictures besides landscapes. Landscapes are nice and all, but knew in my photographer’s soul that there were thousands of photos I was walking past that were close range, but I wasn’t seeing the opportunity. This has always been an issue for me in densely packed scenes. Isolating one thing out of the grand picture is something that I’m really going to try to put a priority on for the coming year.
At any rate, here is one of the few attempts I made to get the close-up shot. I’m not sure how I feel about it yet. The colors are vibrant and all, but I’m not sure there’s a clear subject, or focus of attention.
