19. Autumnal Still Life
Yeah, I know. It's a stick. A young but very dead tree (or part thereof) laying out over the water. To me though, it's a metaphor of the everyday struggles of and for life in the wilderness. A relatively young tree, for whatever reason, meets its end and falls in a very photogenic position. It's autumn, a sign that vegetation is starting to prepare for the long, harsh winter ahead, as can be verified by the colourful surrounding vegetation. The water is very still, as though even it is resigned to the 5 or so months of being locked in ice with the freezing temperatures that are coming. Photographs should tell a story. This is this photograph's story, told very poignantly, I believe, by nature. All I had to do was stand in the right place and capture it on digital film.
