    Reminds me of the more modern movie "The Happening."

    Speaking of the plant apocalypse, here's a nice live oak that was looming over me. Same camera, lens, etc.:

    Short of renting a scissor lift, that's definitely the right camera angle for that part of the world...

    With alligators creeping around, I wouldn't spend too much time looking up. Nice shot Corran.

    Re: Large Format Landscapes

    Thanks Alan
    We saw a few that morning. I like to play red-light-green-light with them. They are just curious - when you look away, they will get closer. Then you turn around, they stop. It's really funny! Usually just 4-5 foot youngsters that are not looking for a meal, except maybe if someone has fed them illegally or you have a small dog...

    Here's a photo from Big Talbot State Park's famous "Boneyard."

    Bryan, is the Big Talbot shot recent? Is the park open again?

    Just a few days ago. Was it closed? I always get there before it officially opens and park outside the gate, pay and hang my tag, and walk in.

    It was a couple of years ago when I was last there. Erosion from a storm had damaged the trails. There used to be a place a mile or so south of the entrance where you could park and hike in, but again erosion made the drop off to the beach too high to climb down.

    Brian...fantastic! That live oak photo is almost scary...like a huge wave about to crash down on my head! Nice use of a super-wide!

    I do have a question about the 12x20 image. If I'm guessing correctly that the feet of your tripod may have been in some soft, wet sand...then how did you stabilize them to ensure that the camera did not move during the exposure? "Snowshoe" attachments, perhaps?

    Thanks John! The camera and tripod sank into the sand when I set it up, but afterward it seemed steady enough. That mud or "black rock" as the state park calls it might be hiding underneath, creating a bedrock for the camera? IIRC the exposure was only a few seconds.
