Doug Turns with the Autumn Leaves

Autumn Sweetgum Tree, Doug's Back Yard, Charleston, SC  © Doug Hickok


To make this autumn abstract, I stood beneath a colorful sweetgum tree, looked up while balancing my camera between nose and forehead, spun around performing a pirouette with arms wide open, like a whirlybird, and belted out an inspirational hymn in my best yodeling voice. I don't know, it seemed to work.

  12. stunning result of your experiment! i'm sure the yodeling did it, making all the difference here ... ;-))
    (as to menai strait - the difference bw high tide and low tide is striking indeed! at low tide, there's not much water to be seen; at high tide, all you see is water everywhere ...)
