Stand up and Grow up

Flattr this!

I like two images below more and more.  They represented durability and brittleness of nature at the same time based on relation between tree, hill and weather conditions. I take these photos near Lagoa do Fogo during the time when I was waiting for better light conditions, specifically I was waiting when mist will start to disapper and reveals beauty of crater lake below me.

In meantime I replaced my wide angle lens for telephoto lens and started to look for subtle details on edges of volcanic crater. I found this hill where such tree looks like it is trying to survive despite the mist. I felt tree is talking to me: I will survice, I am still stand up here.

After mist has been disappeared over the sea, robustness of hill was much more evident, but it has almost the same effect on tree. You can realize, if you start thinking about space and perspective on image, that visible top of tree signals also high and mighty giant. And Giant is still growing.

Both images are available on my 500px profile where you can purchase one or both of them, if you like them.
