My Abstract Header: Leaves, Water, and Fall

I’ve always preferred headers on web sites that are fairly straight-forward. I’m not the creative type who can whip abstractions up out of the blue.

Nevertheless, I spent a little time today tweaking a picture I took in 2005 of some leaves in a stream at the base of Mt. Greylock in MA. The fall leaves were a beautiful array of colors and I was lucky enough to capture the sun at just the right angle. You can view the full picture here.

The final result is a bit creepy and odd, but it’s a change of pace for me. I’m curious to know your reaction as you look at it. Does it work? Is it sensory overload? Should I go back to trees, leaves, and scenery pictures?

    I don’t think it’s creepy, it’s neat. Is there a way you can use just 1 level instead of a double height? the repeat looks a little weird

    When you refer to "double height" you mean that the navigation header appears twice across the top? I’m sure it’s something to do with the CSS, which I know almost nothing about. It’s probably worth taking a peak at it, but no promises. I’m one step away from clueless when it comes to web stuff.
