Strip Trees

I'm tantalized by trees
This time of year
Disrobing to appreciative eyes
Standing stark against Carolina skies
The patterns of branches
Against breathtaking expanses
Light or dark
Inspire me to stretch the limits
In their depiction

I sincerely hope that they don't mind
A digital peek
And a Photoshop tweak
Or two

Thanks, Len. It's easy with such fantastic surroundings.

Always nice hearing from you, Mark!

Don't mind one bit. ;) Bared limbs show the character...something I sometimes miss, surrounded by evergreens. Thanks, Mike, beautifully done.

Well done, Mike, sure interesting to see the comparisons.

Seems I've heard that before, Erin. Character. You have a wonderful memory. Thanks.

The variety of light is definitely interesting, Mel. After all, light is what photography is all about. Good call.
