This piece was commissioned by a friend for her daughter. The photo was taken on the daughter's honeymoon and was a fond memory.
I enjoyed the challenge of making this piece with my focus being the tree.
He was walking up a trail to take photos and I told him I'd just wait. I was sitting on a rock wall looking around and came "face to face" or make that "face to tree" with this scene. I recognized it right away because I'd spent so much time working on it's details. I was amazed that I'd stumble upon the same scene.
