Really stacked
Posted By: regken, 01-18-2007, 08:54 AM

Defiantly stacked right for drying. About 20 cords I'd guess.

Regards,

I like it. Great use of perspective. You might be able to pull you level a little to whiten the snow.
Lots of memories of cutting, splitting, stacking and hauling.
Thank God that is over.

Great shot. Looks like two ancient stone fence walls there rather than stacks.

I heard about the terrible snow storm in US on news...

Hey Clarence, you know what they say about cutting firewood. Ir warms you twice. Once when you cut it and again when you burn it.

And once again when you haul it in and one more time when you sweep up the mess.

Thanks,
Ken if you don't mind I have taken some liberty with these below to explain.
They are much easier to see side by side for comparison purposes.
The first one if from above..........................................................................The second one is the one I adjusted.
At this small scale there is not a major noticable difference but I think you can see it helped the exposure on the snow. You probably already know this but when shooting snow scenes they fool your light meter so adjust your EV up somewhere between 1.5 to 2 f stops. Experiment as the snow in the shadows will expose differently than the snow in the sunlight too.
For this adjustment in Photoshop I went to Select/Color Range and clicked on the snow on the right side of the pile (in shade) then did a levels adjustment on the light side only. Did another selection same and did a curves adjustment on the light side only. Hope this helps.

Oh boy, does that bring back memories! My dad used to (and still does)
burn wood for most of his heat.

Thanks for sharing this one Ken. Can I ask where it was taken?

This is "Down East" Maine. Near Rockland and that is about 1 hour north of Portland along the coast. A little bit of trivia. When you go north east out of Portland you are heading "Down east". The term comes from the old Schooner sailing days. The prevailing wind blows north east so if you are heading up the coast you will be sailing "Down wind". Therefore you are going Down east.

Thanks for the reply. The reason I ask is that it looks so much like where
I grew up (northen Wisconsin). We vacationed in Maine 3 summers ago
and it reminded me so much Wisconsin/Upper Michigan. Birch, pople and
spruce covered hills. Small towns and a really big body of water! The
Atlantic is much bigger than Lake Superior, but they will both turn
your legs blue mighty quick.

We loved Maine, and can't wait to visit again. We toured a small college,
and I hoped my daughter would go there, just so we could come visit!
