Quick Hits: Simple stories of photographic discovery

Here is the September harvest moon setting in an Atlantic White Cedar swamp. Two of my favorite things. If you follow my work you know about my obsession with the moon and Pine Barrens cedar swamps, but that’s not the subject of this post. It is about keeping an open mind to what’s being presented in front of your camera. The original idea for this image was to photograph the moon and a single cedar tree using a 400mm telephoto lens. While composing that image, the color and texture of the grasses and tree on the right kept calling to me, so I switched lenses and waited for the moon to be in a nice place to complete the composition. As a landscape photographers, sometimes we need to let the landscape tell the story and provide an interpretation in how we compose our photographs.
