I’ve always wanted to take a shot of a bare tree by itself against a bright sky. I’ve found it’s not that easy to find, so when I came across this one I got a little excited. I was lucky it was the right time of year, it was accessible and there were no people around to get in the way. I put my tripod down on the stump of what looked like this tree’s brother, composed and shot.
The crown of the tree fit perfectly in the square frame, there was no wind and the light was nice and flat. I knew right away I had a great shot. I was so happy when I pulled the film off the reel after development, it was exactly as I had seen it in my head.
