Interesting Light

The tree's shadow seems to bely the lighting of the tree itself. Flash, perhaps? Regardless, I like. Nice image! --mark d.

Re: Interesting Light

Interesting observation, and one that I never made myself, but no, no flash. It was early afternoon but in winter, so that could account for the shadow.

Re: Great Shot!

Thank you, Afzal. This was one of my favorite trees, and I took many shots of it from different angles and under different conditions. It finally fell during ice storms 8 years ago, and I still miss that tree.

Re: Took me a while, but...

Thanks! Sadly, this tree finally fell ten years ago after an ice storm. However, I have several pictures of it from over a four-year period. For some reason, I was always fascinated by this tree.

Re: beautiful

Thanks, Tomek. This was a favorite spot of mine until the tree finally fell down after an ice storm about ten years ago.
