Conservation Center Photography Show -- Spring Forest, Joe English Reserve, Amherst NH, 2001

In the spring the forests are full with fresh new growth and they teem with contrast and light.  In this image I framed the scene with the central dark tree in the center and what might seem like two paths, one on either side of that central tree.  The birch tree on the left of the center tree creates a subtle difference in the two paths, as does the somewhat brighter and open forest on the right, and makes me think of Robert Frost's poem "The Road Not Taken" even though the choices here are barely even paths.

The image was made with a Cambo 4x5 mono-rail view camera and printed with pigment ink on Hahnemülhe photo rag paper (308gsm weight).  Image size 20" x 15.6".
