To photograph components of the image, I drove out to the middle of no-where Idaho to this beauitiful old oak grove hidden in the forest. I hiked a mile or so into the woods with my slightly injured dog, praying I wouldn't see a moose or a bear! (don't worry, bear spray was on my belt!). Spotted the location ad hiked back to the car to gather all the gear (ladder, tripod, camera, wardrobe) and then hiked back out to the location.
If you've eery been to a really, really old oak grove, you know there is something special in the air. walking through the old trees felt like I was walkin in the deep ocean, alongside ancient wise whales.
Check out the video of how it was made in Photoshop:
I photographed this image in the summer of 2019, before I knew the desperate need of perspective, rest, clarity, and fun that we would all be longing for in 2020! Late one night, made my way carefully down the pitch-black, dirt road for the final night of my summer road trip. Photoshoot adventures are my favorite! After doing these photo-shoot adventures for years, I've found that sleeping in my tiny car at the trailhead is the best way for me to NOT oversleep for early hikes!
