People inevitably look for meaning in everything they see and this picture's appeal is in the human forms made by the trees in this olive grove.
Technically, it's very simple, shot on a tripod-mounted Canon EOS 1D MkII with a 28-70mm lens. A tripod is invaluable for landscape photography, not only to stabilise the camera when working with small apertures or low light but to slow down the picture taking process. Because it takes time to set up any tripod-mounted photograph, the photographer is forced to think about the picture he or she is about to take in much more detail. You can also give yourself the time to make sure that you get the composition right in one shot by taking notice of all of the details that might get lost in an action shot.
