The ‘los Hermanitos’ is what I dubbed the little pine tree and small juniper bush. I came across this Spanish phrase in one of the novels I am reading. It means the little brothers. Perched side by side on a small cliff over looking the lake. This set up was located behind our campsite on O S A Lake last Fall in Killarney Provincial Park. I had first noticed these two pint-sized trees on an earlier trip in, but the lighting had not been right or we were off photographing somewhere else. They look like two people enjoying the evening view high on the rocks. The wind was calm, the water smooth and the beautiful Fall colors before them.
I set up my tripod behind the little ones. The height of the tripod was lowered to the height of the trees and I wanted to show enough rock detail for added depth and habitat. I also chose a vertical format to keep things tight. The objective was not to lose the miniature trees in the scene. Across the way is the La Cloche Mountains in their Fall glory. Locating objects like you see in the above photo do not come by everyday so when the opportunity presents itself I try to make the most of it.
That is it for now. Thank you for coming by and thank you for the comments. I am now settled in the apartment. I have my work on display. If you are in the vicinity stop by for a viewing and maybe you will buy that special gift for a love one or good friend. So until next time happy trails.
