Bamboo forest Kyoto

HDR photographer Trey Ratcliffe said of this photo:

While exploring Kyoto, I eventually found my way to this fanciful bamboo forest. There had been a light rain most of the morning and everything was quite lovely. The rain does strange things as it moves its way through these sorts of trees. I waited and waited, and that was nice too. In the early afternoon, the rain stopped while the sun peeked through the top. It shone down while the earlier rain misted down from the tops of the trees.

He calls it a standard 5-exposure HDR, taken with a 14-24mm lens.

Personal note: My recent absence from blogging was caused by a hurricane of writing. I know from experience that when the Muse sits on your shoulder, you must give her your full attention, usually to the detriment of everything else. If you ask her to wait a bit while you take care of something else, then by the time you get back to her, she’s long gone. Muses are not forgiving of insufficient worship.

And I’m still writing, but am at a point now where I can look around and see what else needs to be taken care of. (Last night it was finances, ugh. It would be nice if those would just take care of themselves while we’re busy, wouldn’t it?) So, expect more regular blogging now.

But then again, I’m also watching the Olympics…
