Default The letter B

Hi all,
I'm going for a simple solution for this challenge:



Think of going on a hiking/walking tour on a sunny day in the morning and then having a nice lunch around 1pm or so in the shadows of some trees, right in the middle of nowhere. Smoked trout, potato salad and... a cold beer.

I placed the beer at one of the trees in a forked branch and here we go. No crop, very minor postprocessing, mainly resizing.

Kind regards,
Th.

Ahh,
Brings to mind:

A Book of Verses underneath the Bough, A Jug of Wine, a Loaf of Bread--and Thou Lovely setting

Nice clear shot. I feel like I can almost pick up that bottle and drink away.

@Selvin
Uh-oh, I wasn't expecting poetry but if I go back to that moment ... after having the first gulp (or what would be the right word here?) some verses and/or praising words would have been a good idea. If I remember correctly I instead tried to find out, how long we'd have to wait for the freshly smoked trout... oh well. I like the verses and will probably remember them when I see the image again, thank you.

@Bynx
Thank you, too - and I did exactly that after I took the photo . Later I found out, that they sell the same kind of beer in my town, too - and it became one of my favourites. That's life...

Regards,
Th.
