Default A tree in a park

I took this picture earlier today in the wonderful weather we had in MD. Played around with it a tad, converted it to b&w, and added grain, afterwards I think I reliazed I was trying to emulate a nice tri-x shot. Tell me what you think!

Love at first sight!

Did you fiddle at all with the sun to give it star quality?

All I can think of is that the sap flows down into the roots in winter. But still, wouldn't there be residual moisture that would freeze and, if so, wouldn't the expansion of this freezing damage the tree?

Good question, Digcamfan.

I didnt fiddle with the sun at all actually. I didnt even think to do so. It just turned out that way in the picture. As far as why trees dont freeze, think of sap the same way as you do antifreeze in a car. It doesnt freeze as easily, but it will. In extremely harsh climates, trees have been known to go boom! As thier sap freezes, it expands and the tree pops. Glad you guys like the picture!

Just like uninsulated plumbing. Poor trees.
