Crying Song - Pink Floyd

The weeper;

Steal funnels added to the spring board holes to enhance the eyes. B&W due to the low light and general muted colors. I haven't posted in for awhile but I went to the pass this morning and this seemed appropriate for the MA.

What a unique point of view...and it matches the song title. Way to go!

p.1 #6 · #113 Crying Song - Pink Floyd


Thank you for all the comments. This is my favorite place to go this time of year. Itís a reservoir built in the 1940ís. The trees were clear cut to salvage the wood before they flooded the area, but they left the stumps. Over time the bark fell away and the stumps can go from a dark brown to white depending on the moisture content. The area is only accessible during Sept-Nov each year when the water level reveals these 6-12 feet tree stumps, this one is about 10 feet. I would love to be there when the first snow falls, but I know I would get stuck without a rugged 4x4; from Nov/Dec-Mar/Apr the area is covered in snow, from Apr/May-Aug/Sept the area is under water.

it is a very interesting image outside of the theme for the month. I don't get the sense of scale based on your description, which is kinda cool. I am also a HUGE Pink Floyd fan, and that is OLD school...so that is a bonus for me!

Thank you. I do like to play with the viewers perspective. I stand 5'10" and stretching on my toes I could touch the bottom of spring board holes. I want to add a human element and I think an artist nude figure might work. But I have to think that one through.

How big are the spring boards and what are they for?

The spring board notches held the spring boards the logger stood on to cut down the tree. You might have seen this in old movies where two men are standing horizontal boards with axes on either side of the tree truck. The goal was to get above the thicker lower truck section to reduce the amount of work needed to fell the tree. The actual notches are about 4-6 inches deep, 8 inches wide and 4-6 inches high. Some of the larger trees can have 6-8 notches around the base and are at least 8 feet across, diameter.

James, I wanted to try round silver ornaments but couldn't find anything suitable. I ended up finding these stainless steel funnels that are about 2 inches across. I was trying to add a catch light but I'm still playing with this idea. The weather is changing here in the Pacific NW and I hope to make another run next week.

Hey, Don. Very creative shot. Nicely done. Could have also been Buddy Holly's 'Valley of Tears'.

Lake Keechelus in Snoqualmie pass?

I recognized the location instantly, as I used to spend many days up there when I lived in Kirkland. Great place for winter photos too!
