You can almost feel the fog descending in this thickly wooded forest on an early morning.
This scene is in Fleming Park in Jackson County, Missouri, home of Lake Jacomo. Created on a rare foggy morning just behind a picnic shelter, there are many possible compositions within this frame. With the strong vertical lines to each side, the scene invites the viewer to enter into the sanctuary of the forest, amidst the enshrouding mist.
The Old Man in the Tree is a carving by an anonymous artist into the trunk of a large tree in the woods of south Kansas City. It has been there for years and you have to know how to get there as it is literally in the middle of the woods.
