Tangled Oak

Garry Oak tree, Government House, Victoria, BC
(Camera: Pentax ME Super; Lens: Tokina 28mm f/2.8; Film: Fuji Acros 100)


I love Garry oak trees — they have the most intricate structures and the older they get, the wilder they look. I shot this during a recent stretch of foggy weather we had here, which helps give the scene a little more atmosphere. I spent a lot of time walking around this tree before I found what I considered to be the optimal shooting position. The wide-angle lens helps enhance a sense of depth and dimensionality.
