Pictures from Eternity by justeline Pictures from Eternity by justeline
This used to be a tree. Thousands of years ago there used to be a forest here. Then came time, an eternity of it, and water and mud and all the elements worked slowly but patiently their magic, turning the wood into hard stone.

Then, thousands of years later, on a beautiful afternoon along came two photographers to explore the place, found it enchanting and decided to stay and wait for the sunset hoping to capture an image of eternity’s work. The silly female photographer (that’s me alright) made the mistake of spending too much time exploring the place and upon returning to the point of interest (the fossil tree trunks) discovered that the clever male photographer (that’s *KirlianCamera alright) had already set up his gear and composed a shot which covered the entire area of interest. Which basically means that wherever I stood I turned around and saw him looking at me like this :roll: “you’re in my #^$&$ frame :stab:"! I gave up and went to shoot at some waves, fuming from the ears at first cause the last thing you wanted to capture at such a place was another sea and rocks combo and decided to demand a return visit the next day so I could have my go at the place. On a side note, the soothing effect of the sea worked its magic again and very soon I forgot all about the trunks and was just so happy to be there and enjoy the sunset!

Fortunately, the aforementioned photographer felt that he had captured the shot he wanted while the light was still good so I had the time to set up at my chosen spot and capture this image.

Hope you like it! :)

omg, omg, omg, this is just crazy good...I get such a sense of dejavu when I gaze at your work! Btw, I read yer story re this shot, and I love what you wrote, cuz you got a perfect capture...the clouds are just right--kinda like a glacial u valley coming at the viewer at a cool angle. Some things are just mean to be/work out, etc. and you are definately blessed in this regard. It soooo works to let go & let god/goddess rule the day, eh???

Added και αυτό στην συλλογή μου =P , βασικά κάνω έρευνα για ένα 3D landscape project και οι φωτογραφίες που έχεις είναι πραγματικά πολύ "βαθιές" σε συναισθήματα, ακριβώς αυτό που χρειάζεται κάθε εικόνα για να αρέσει. :D

you are more than welcome.
I'm a very honest and direct person. When i don't like something i say it and on the other side i am really happy to tell people when they created something beautiful. you have an amazing eye for beauty in this world while many people lost the ability to look at it.
