Orientation: Landscape
Shot: A colony of mature trees in fall foliage on sand dunes. Photographer's note: "I think the Ohoopee Dunes are one of the finest habitats in Georgia. They are aeolian sand dunes covered primarily with turkey oaks (Quercus laevis) and longleaf pines (Pinus palustris). Three different tracts are preserved by the State. The Nature Conservancy and U.S. Fish and Wildlife preserve other tracts. I took this photo using the WiFi function on the camera and my iPhone as the remote. It is a fabulous thing. The camera was attached to the tripod and my friend Chris Walls held the camera as high as he could (at least 12 feet high) and I adjusted the exposure, focused, and took the photo with my phone. He did a great job of keeping it level. This was the only way I could take the photo above the stunted canopy. The turkey oaks have surprisingly beautiful fall foliage."
