Tree & Trees

I found this awesome tree extending out into the lake from the banks of the south side of Tuttle Creek Lake that I really wanted to incorporate into a bunch of different pictures.  This tree looked like it was an arm with a hand at the end grasping into the water.  Really cool looking.  However, the angle that which it was facing the trees across the pond made it very tricky to compose in a pleasing manner.  Ultimately I only took two or three sets of brackets with it because I just couldn’t find a comp that didn’t have the tree blocking the background or just look out of place.  Here is one of the sets that I took.

  3. Nice wisps of clouds and cool reflections. Something about old dead trees like this just captures the imagination doesn’t it?

  7. Cool colors and find here Scott.. Definitely can see what you mean about the tree blocking out the background a bit. Sometimes it’s just not possible to find that perfect composition when it comes to landscapes you gotta make do with what you’re given.

    Anyways cool find thanks for sharing 🙂
