Trees


 Looking up at the silhouette


Looking down at the reflection


Looking closer

All of these were taken today on auto. 
I cropped a bit and adjusted the white balance on #2
#3 is all about texture so I made it black and white. 
#1 I adjusted the highlights to bring out the clouds.

  2. Silhouettes, reflections, and texture - a triple play! I love them all. And each one is a reminder about the simple natural beauty that is all around us. We just have to look!

  5. Is that last tree developing a burl? I just learned about this at Judith's. The first photo is striking and my favorite.

    1. It is where a branch was cut off. I'm not sure it's a burl but I'm not an expert on that.

  6. Great job! Three very different pictures from different perspectives, all of which nailed the theme.

  9. Tree reflections can be just as nice to look at as the upward view. It looks like a big eye on the trunk of the last tree.
