I think that too...Deciduous have a special place for me because they are somewhat fleeting and less common where I live but after 10+ years in this place I really notice it when I can't smell the jack pine. I love the way they stand, perfect vertical orientation Very...Austere, as if they were perfectly sure of the direction they wanted to go in. Much appreciated friend!
It seems without noticing I shot this image at f/4, when I would normally at least shoot at f/11 or higher for a shot like this. So the closest edge of the foreground is slightly out of focus...I am forgetful sometimes LOL
I'm that way all the time! I know all the rules and principles behind photography and I even understand the technical aspects of both film and digital, but all that leaves the moment I put the camera in my hand. Been that way since birth, can't do a thing about it!
