Stark Trees, Harsh Skyline

Originally uploaded by svanstraten

One unavoidable consequence of the weather was the merging of sky and earth.

I'd been walking for an hour when I glanced up the ridge to my left and saw these trees, defiantly making a stand against the elements.

It felt like someone had sucked the colour out of the day.

I like the closeness of the contrast between root, branch and ether.

What a striking photo! I love the juxtapostion of the stark branches against the grey stone sky. I love your image that the color was sucked out of the world...if I didn't know better I would have thought this had been shot in BW!
Enjoy the day!

Hi Erin,

It was one of those shots that came out better than expected. I'm glad you like it!
