Many times the holes that some birds make, by feeding on insects living in dead trees, are homes for other smaller creatures.
This photograph was taken in Mazama Wa, in Washington State. This town is located in the Pacific Northwest near the Okanogan National Forest. Specifically the Arrowleaf trail system. I was taking a hike with my family and exploring nature.
I started with a digital photograph and used a HDR process to tone map the light. Then I applied a finishing oil paint layer to add texture to the overall image. I did some tonal work to even out the colors and make them realistic to what I was seeing in nature but not excessively.
I am interested in photography as an "unusual" or "unique" image making process. In other words I enjoy starting with a photograph of an ordinary scene or subject and then I try to make it my own by adding unusual processing techniques. I hope you enjoy viewing my work as much as i enjoy creating it.
