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 eternitys work. The silly female photographer (thats 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 (thats *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
youre in my #^$&$ frame
"! 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.
