Over a couple of days, I tried to get some photos of the snow on the trees in Ishpeming… a little early for November, but not unbelievable for the U.P. However, it was cloudy and dark every day I tried, which made it difficult to get a correct white balance. Or at least that felt right. White balancing is probably my weakest ability with photography. While many of the image didn’t turn out how I’d hoped, I did have some fun with a few of them… this one I’d framed in a way that tree branches were all moving from one side to the other, but it didn’t look balanced to me. So I cropped it and flipped a copy side-by-side, resulting in a bit of a combination Hindu and Native American totem pole feel – I see several faces and arms, etc… maybe it’s Heikki Lunta.
