complex photo in nature

There ain’t no such thing as a lonely tree.

Nature is complex. And with all things the more you start to understand stuff, the more you know that you don’t know much at all.
Photos can be minimalistic and simple of design, still they are complex. Art is as complex as the observer.
In this case I wanted a complex image with all kinds of detail and directions. Still the two branches give the photo a structure.
It’s hard to say sometimes what triggers me to take a photo of a certain situation. There’s a lot of intuition involved. Stupid excuse, but as the experience grows you get to know your own intuition better. I feel that by photography I get to know myself better and as I live not alone, my surroundings too. As life is complex and connected.

A photo is a strange thing as it resembles reality so closely, still it’s something completely different. It’s a memory and even a memory is not the same. Even a photo on a screen is not the same as a printed one. We all know that, but often we forget and are lured into the comfortable thought that what we see in the photo is the thing itself.
