Was on a long drive today and stopped at these trees. The lighting was balanced with these trees which caught my eye.

Cool shot. It almost looks like the trees are going to start crawling out of the picture.

Hi Kevin

As usual, you've presented a beautiful landscape scene. The lighting is very special. My friend the other day was saying she plans to plant a silver birch tree. I take it / guess - these are silver birches (or similar?)

The only thing that 'bugs' me (just a bit) is that the larger tree (about 2/3 to the right of the photo) is a bit 'bright / hot'. If it was not quite so bright, there would be an overall more subtle mood to the photo.

Did you use flash? The grass at the bottom of the photo seems to be lit up by that, and the way the nearer trees are significantly brighter than the ones off and behind.

Again, I like the composition and simplicity. It makes me feel like it's a scene out of a thriller movie.

All the best. Thanks for sharing.

Paul

That is a beautiful photo! I have some large, framed posters, similar to this hanging in my bathroom. But, yours is better!

Yes Paul, these are birch, my favourite ones to photograph. I would have to agree that the tree on the right is a bit to hot and bugs me too. No, I didn't use a flash. The sun was high and behind a cloud at the time so I dialled down the exposure -2/3rds to give the background that darker feel.
Thanks Soupcreek, tswen and JeannieBug!

Cheers! Have a great middle of the working week Wednesday
