As alluded to in an earlier post, my photography was feeling a wee bit ‘rusty’ due to a prolonged period of inactivity, so I’d ventured out to see what I could do but without having any clear goals in mind. After a bit of time photographing near a bandstand, I was about to leave the Macrosty park in Crieff when I came across this scene and I immediately saw its potential; even the title ‘Waiting’ was revealed to me at this point.
An empty path winds its way passed gate-keepers formed by the heavily textured trunks of two mighty trees to arrive at this empty bench; ‘waiting’ for a visitor, though no one knows for sure? The slightly ominous feel of the scene is aided and abetted by the infrared treatment, the grasping foliage hanging from above and the cool spilt tone given in post production. All together, not too shabby a creation!
