Orderly Trees

I took this shot on a roadway across the ridge above Rocky Paddock, Mount Ctrawford Forest, north-east of Adelaide, in May, 2008. It's in the high telephoto range and I was surprised at just how much information the image contains, given that I was shooting at only 2mP on the day. The further forests -- tree farms, this is a pine plantation for the building industry, being progressively harvested -- created a symmetry on the hillsides which made an interesting contrast with the organic nature of the trees closer at hand, and the telephoto framed one within the other. The tonal range within the greens and other hues is appealing, also. Sharpness, contrast and colour were adjusted slightly. Fuji FinePix S5600, automatic. Image by Mike.
