I don’t really like winter a whole lot, but I will have to say that it makes for some pretty cool photo opportunities.
As much as I wish it were true, I have to admit that I didn’t actually get that awesome shot. It’s a composite of two separate images (both of the same subject, however, so that’s a little better); the first I spent a long time carefully composing to get the tree centered just right and the shadow just perfect. And then a bird flew by, and I thought, “Ooh, that would be amazing!” So I took the same picture with the bird, but the composition kinda sucked. So I cheated a little bit… I still think it’s a beautiful image, though.
These next two are as-is:
