Conservation Center Photography Show -- Hemlock Trees, Woodstock CT, 2012

These hemlock trees are quite massive and I was struck by the dark foliage and the delicate needle structure.  The branches always seem to be weeping, giving the image a somewhat melancholy aura and at the same time the lightness of the foliage provides tension with a more positive feeling.

The image was made with my Nikon Coolpix P510 point and shoot camera with digital capture. The image was printed with pigment ink on Hahnemülhe photo rag paper (308gsm weight). 14.7" x 11.0"
