Photographer's Note

I've passed this old stump many times, and almost everytime I've thought to myself that it would make a good subject for a photo. No matter how many times I tried I just couldn't get a good composition and I just couldn't figure out what to do with it. Finally, the idea for this came to me - silhouetting the stump against the blurred out ocean. The stump comes across as a kind of scupture inspired by an octopus. The long exposure resulted in some blur in the clouds as they blew past overhead.

For some reason the title of that old song "Age of Aquarius" jumped into my head when I looked at this - maybe because of that line about "when Jupiter aligns with Mars". I think the shot has a kind of new age feel, although that wasn't really what I was looking for as I'm not a new age person at all.
