Was beginning to forget what my camera looked like, as it hasn't been out of the bag for a few weeks. Saw a shot yesterday as I was coming home in the car, but it wasn't there today, as the light was not right. So, I went back to another location close by where I've been before.
I love this tree, particularly in the northern winter when all the leaves are off it. So, I just wandered around a bit despite the fact that the windchill was painful on the skin.
What I was really wanting to do was convey, what I think is, the beautiful structure of the tree.
Any thoughts (good, bad or indifferent) are always welcome.
I find that sharpening and avoiding halos with this level of detail (the branches and twigs) is a big challenge.
