Photography is great, you get to interpret beautiful scenes for all the world to see. However, photography also has a bad side—if you strive to better your skills constantly.
You have to learn to ignore the very beautiful in hopes of capturing the best or to bypass the ordinary in order to attain the elusive perspective.
Here is a beautiful scene made even more so by the evening sun as it descends through the forest canopy. This would make a great background for a compilation with other images, perhaps for a book cover but it lacks a good subject. This is the kind of picture anyone walking by here at this time of day would take but it can't ascend to the ranks of "printable" simply because it isn't interesting enough.
I took this because I hadn't found anything else on this day to capture with my camera and I was getting a bit "trigger happy". It happens and I'm not ashamed of the resulting image but I have to be honest with myself and realize it's just an ordinary picture, nothing to see here, time to move along.
