Juniper
Lens: SMC Pentax-6x7 1:2.8 90mm Camera: 645Z Photo Location: Fields, Oregon, USA ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/125s Aperture: F16 

This Utah juniper is likely over 200 years old. Barely inside the boundaries of a National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon, this survivor has been spared from woodcutters. It's full form is rounded and elegant but I wanted to capture something about it's strength and it's thick trunk and grasp on the hard ground did it for me. I needed detail in both the trunk and bright surrounding, but I also did not want an HDR look either. The 645Z aalowed me to expose for enough detail and reduce highlights but then bring out enough texture in the trunk due to it's awesome dynamic range.

Very well executed. No question, black & white will never outlive its usefulness. Where in Oregon is this Wildlife Refuge, Roseburg? We live in Beaverton.

Many thanks for uploading
