Picnic Anyone?…

by on Jul.27, 2016, under Life, Photography

One of the somewhat bizarre aspects of this location at Glen Davis (and there are many) is this very nice picnic table. It’s setup here amongst the rubble and ruins however it seems at odds with it’s surroundings.

I’m really not sure who exactly would be picnicing here (it’s on private property after all). Anyway we never did actually have a picnic out here. It does however provide a counterpoint to my background along with this very nice swathe of green moss in the foreground.

I’m not exactly sure what this particular building was for. Nor why these very large circular holes at intervals near ground level. These circular ‘windows’ were opposite each other on both sides of the building but only on the ground level.

Regardless, I found it made for an interesting composition looking through to the world beyond. I needed to bracket exposures for this final image. I took nine (9) exposures from -4EV to +4EV at 1EV intervals and blended them in post for this somewhat funky result.

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger. To see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer click any of the images below.

Lastly climbing the hill a little at the back of the ruins I shot back down the valley. The slightly higher perspective gives you a good view over the main ruins area. The main “road” leads right down the middle. In the distance we have Pantoney Crown (commonly called Capertee Crown).
