An unattractive background forced me to look at shooting this tree from a reflection, which put the tree at an angle that used the sky as a background. It wasn't until after I looked at the image on a large screen that I realized that the leaves in the water appeared as part of the reflection like a ghosted image of the leaves that were once on the tree.
The texture on this tree branch, between the bark and the various mosses, caught my eye. I would love to shoot these subjects with a marcro lens someday. Maybe that will be my next gear purchase…after a flash.
