“Just Don’t Shoot a Stump!”
Yeap, I have this thing against ugly stump and stick photos. Yet, not sooner then I warn the group not get sucked into shooting stumps and sticks, the next thing they know, I’m shooting a 30foot tall stump. What the?! I just walked a short distance and I saw this stump and as I walked around it, I got to this spot and saw a woman in a long dress carrying a bull statue. I know, I know, I need some rest. Then the “I wonder” went across my mind and no matter what, I follow those thoughts. So I hassled getting the 16Fish out, set up in this tiny slot between the trees, danced around the sunburst coming into the lens, shot the damn HDR, processed it only in the end to be reminded of one thing. Whatever you do, don’t shoot the stomp!
