Oh, I like this one! Believe it or not, I've had my eye on a couple of trees with this same look. I keep forgetting my camera.

I like this photo. We have quite a few trees in East Texas like this one. It has a spooky feel to it!

Beautiful monochrome! It really looks like the branches are reaching for the sky.

Oh I love those leafless trees and how they look against the bare sky! I must remember to take some. Lovely!

Those branches are talking.
I hear 'em.

I love how some trees - especially bare ones - seem to evoke such emotion as they reach for the sky. It's difficult to not be moved by the spectacle. Even more difficult is capturing that emotion in a photo, which is precisely what you've accomplished here. The lighting is divine...I can almost feel myself standing there, taking it in in all dimensions.

Mojo,
this has a great mood set, I just love it!

This is simply stunning in its starkness!

It makes me envision myself with black wings, standing on one of the upper branches, preparing to take off. (of course, in my vision, I'm light enough and the branch is sturdy enough to support me), lol
