clouds-road-sunshine-nature-photography-SwittersBI have this quirk: I try to avoid power lines, light poles, and such when staging a shot. There are times I will crop a shot to escape the lines, poles and signs of mankind. I don’t often do people, street life, urban chaos etc. I have considered doing more urban stuff but short of abandoned buildings, decay and such, I just don’t relate that often to what I see around me. Nature beckons, gardens beckon, mountains, trees, rivers and lakes. Throw a person into that mix and I struggle to feel it….unless it is someone I know.

Here my son, Tony, was fishing for Chinook this weekend. He hooked into a 10′ sturgeon. He is the focus here.

Sometimes the intrusion of people and things fly in the face of the overall scene.
