Scattered Trees are awesome

I took the family B out to Cheam Lake Wetlands yesterday.  We’ve finally had some rain-free days, so I thought we should take advantage of them.  We had set out to visit Bridal Veil Falls, but the park/trail was closed, so we improvised.  The walk around the wetlands was great.  There were a lot of photos I would have loved to have taken, but they were only accessible via hip waders.  This shot was taken from a floating bridge. It was, in fact, taken 180 degrees rotated from this vantage point.  Please feel free to stand on your head or flip your laptop upside down to see it the way I originally saw it.  When I was processing it, I felt that it needed the rotation.  The reflection looked so much more appealing from this perspective.

The title of this post, by the way, refers to what could possibly be the greatest music video ever.  I am a Star Wars nut and this video is just amazing.  Check out the Scattered Trees.

    • Thanks. Sometimes these shots just present themselves. I’m just lucky to be there when they do.
