Not too long ago I decided to explore another one of my local parks. After we found where to park, we looked for a sign that would point us in the direction of the beach. Once the sign was spotted, we were off! After a few minutes the trail goes from bark to dirt-at which point the forest becomes dense with moss-covered trees. You can image starting out in bright, open spaces and then going into a forest that looks like it’s something out of a Grimm fairy tale or scary movie. Despite this, I just had to get a photo of these trees! They’re creepy, but cool-looking. I’m sure you’re thinking, “where can I use a photo like this?” Being October, this is the type of image you could use on the front of hand-made cards. I’d suggest invites to a Halloween or scary movie party. Don’t live near trees with a similar look? Try going to the craft store and buying faux spider webs or moss. Drape them over a tree and photograph to your heart’s content. Some natural elements can be re-created, so if you can’t find something in nature, try creating it yourself!
Anyone who’s strolled on a beach has no doubt come across a piece of driftwood. But have you ever come across an entire group of trees? When I saw these driftwood trees, I just had to take a photo! If you take a closer look, you can see all the barnacles attached to the trees. As I got closer, it was apparent that these trees had been on the beach a long time. It’s always interesting to think about where the trees came from and how they made their way onto the beach. If you’re the type who enjoys making your own cards, a photo like this would be great to put on the cover. No matter the occasion, a photo like this will stir the senses and create a sense of wonder.
