The Writer

The Writer©

On a solo hike up Mount Maxwell on Salt Spring Island, I was enjoying the weather, the solitude, and the silence walking gently on moss covered rock. Suddenly, just over the ridge, was a woman sitting and writing. She didn’t hear me and I didn’t want to startle her.

I took a single high-resolution image on the virtually silent Leica camera I had with me. Then I quietly disappeared back to the trail and into the forest.

Technical: In the image above, did you notice the Z line leading to the writer? (starting at the top left, then diagonal right down the along the tops of the dark green Fir trees to the moss covered rock, then diagonal left to the edge of the viewpoint drop-off and diagonal right back along the rock to the main subject) Photo: Jan 14, 2018
