PLAY Feb - Fuji 18mm f/2: Some Still Standing

I'm sure many of you on here must, like me, regularly take photos of the same scene only to delete them later. This is a view that I've photographed several times over the last few weeks as it reminds me of the devastation of a battlefield. Today, for some reason, I'm happy with the way this one has turned out, so I'm posting before I change my mind!

Actually, it's not devastation at all as this renewable forestation. The large mature trees have already been taken away, these are the remains of the smaller self-seeded ones which are only fit for burning. In a couple of years, the area will be replanted for harvesting at the end of the century!

This is for my PLAY project - you can read more about it in my profile - where I'll be using a different prime lens for each month of the year: for February it's the Fujinon 18mm f/2 on an APS-C sensor camera (today the Fuji X-Pro1) - the equivalent of a 28mm lens on a full-frame camera.

This is also for the Flash of Red 2017 challenge.

Probably best on black...
We see a lot of this here where I live. Large tracts have wood cut, the pines grow up quickly and can be cut again as the deciduous trees grow into their full beauty.

This looks so devastating even though it is a sign of progress in reality. I love the way we can create our stories from your image.

We're fortunate to live in area that lives with the land and cares for it. Active renewal is the backdrop to areas like ours and we're fortunate to be part of this rural community.

Equally there are shots of a familiar place that never fail. It is easier to bring your vision to print sometimes but worth working on the harder ones.

Good decision!

It does look like a battle field now. Glad to know it is a renewables project. Maybe in the next ETSOOI challenge you can photo shop some plastic soldiers have a battle in this scene. ;^)

Wonderful foreground mid gray tone and detail

This is how it looks inside my childhood memory of where I used to play - I don't know if that is alarming or not ...
