After weeks of beautiful mild, dry weather to begin Autumn in 2022, a few days of rain and cooler temperatures had provided an opportunity to head out and try and use these perfect conditions to find some new woodland compositions. The challenge is to isolate a subject from the chaotic mess of twisted branches and fallen trees and one of the tools that can help this is to have some fog or mist in the area. Luckily for me I could see the top of Mount Macedon was covered in a blanket of cloud so drove to this pocket of trees I knew well hoping the conditions would hold, which they did.
What drew me to this image was the glowing orange fungus that was clinging to the broken tree trunk as well as the intricate angles formed by the fallen trees. After a few minor changes of position I settled for this composition and was extremely pleased with the outcome
