Trabuco Canyon I, copyright 2017 Douglas Stockdale –
Between the recent rain storms in Southern California, I decided to take a short walk (yes, not really a hike) through part of the Trabuco Canyon (aka Trabuco Arroyo) adjacent to where we live. I must admit, I am still drawn to the irregular shapes of what I call the lazy Sycamore trees that are found in this canyon. The jumble of spaces, lines, textures and masses are really visually interesting to me, so I decided to have some experimental-fun with this landscape (again). I also could not help working on a variety of framing and presentations; full frame, square (Instagram posting), rectangle, color, black & white, straight, interpretative, layering of effects. Since I no longer consider myself a nature landscape photographer, I did not feel like it was necessary to have a particular “artistic” visual style, but just to experiment and have some photographic fun.
And I have ;- )
