To get to this location, take the exit for highway 76 off of highway 41 in the town of Oshkosh. Turn right and go past a Mobil gas station immediately on your right. Make your first left onto Indian Point Road just past the station. I photographed this scene right near the road where it makes a sharp turn to the left just after you turn onto it.
I was driving back home after doing some errands in town and was struck by the contrast between the green field in the foreground and the yellow leaves on the background trees. The light really made the green of the field stand out. Luckily I had my gear with me. I wanted the viewer to experience the loneliness of the tree in the distance so I used the field and my position to create some negative space around the tree. I framed the shot so as to balance the singularity of the oak tree on the right with the group of trees on the left.
