The classic example of a gnarled tree. I need to come back to this spot some calm night and get about a 30-45 second exposure with my 1.8 50mm, and schedule it for posting on Halloween. As it is, the sun was still fairly high when this was taken with my 75-300mm zoom. I tried taking this tree from several angles, and although the tree itself is interesting I never quite was satisfied with the background. Either the background was so busy it distracted from the tree, or the background didn’t fit the general mood the tree presented (above). In the end, I tried helping to force the creepy mood a little bit by throwing it into black and white.
