    Taken about 2 weeks ago while out doing some landscape photography. Yes, I have a thing for tree roots. :)

    A few minutes after this photo was taken, I slipped and fell into the creek with my DSLR. I got soaked and muddy, but managed to protect the camera.

    I like the setting. The tree roots give me kinda "Lord of the Rings" feel. huhu

    Sorry for the incident. I'm sure the photo will be remembered well for the follow-up story. :)

    that's a nice self portrait.
    a b&w edit is good.

    Mmmm I have a thing for portraits that aren't necessarily traditional and don't just focus on the person, but the environment has a ton to do with it. I love it.

    Great shot, nice B and W. You look different than in your wedding photo, which is where I remember you from. :p

    I really love this portrait, although I think I would have had you a little lower in the composition. You seem to close to the top edge for me.
