Talking Pictures
“Still Waters”

I had found an old wooden bridge I was interested in photographing in Queidersbach, Germany, this past fall. While trying to get just the right shot, I realized that if I could position myself against a tree that was overhanging the stream below I could get it. The only obstacle in my way was a small branch hanging down right in my line of sight. I broke the branch off and tossed it into the water below. After taking several shots of the bridge, I noticed the branch had made a perfect landing and became the focal point for a more interesting picture. Here are the results from that perfect fall day.
