Tree Houses II: Stevenson, Alabama: May 21, 2012

Dewy morning spiderwebs against a hay field with power lines.Tree Houses II

This one was more minimally edited, just a little lighting adjustment.  You can even see the dew drops in the web.  I love the power lines in the background.  Growing up in the country by a power plant I have always been fascinated by the juxtaposition of a the power plant equipment running through fields with dilapidated barns & so many signs of ye olden days it all seems out of sync.

Tree Houses I

Out walking particularly early the other morning & caught all of these dewy spiderwebs strung through the brush.  I had to run back for my camera, because as much as I hate spiders it was beautiful.  Thank goodness for zoom!

I edited this photo a great deal, so much I don’t even know what all I did.  Picasa has added two new tabs of advanced features, so I tried several out & cancelled most of them.  I was trying to bring out the top part of the web, but it was lost to the sky whatever I did.  There were better pictures of the webs, but for some reason I liked this picture best overall.  I like the way it turned out, even if the web didn’t come 0ut the way I wanted it to.  I’ll be posting several more of these.
