Old Soul was my first inherent thought as I approached this barren, twisted and seemingly wizened old tree. I wanted to isolate that feeling of passed on wisdom. So I got in close, to the point where I felt expressed that concept most keenly.
By placing the broken branch on the lower third of the image, the viewers eye is forced in a circular path along the highlights in a sweeping upward motion.
As the eye travels up the tree it's shown all the weathered, aged and one might say experiences that this old growth has endured.
