I debated whether this image was share worthy or not for quite a while. Made on the same day as the shapely dead tree and foliage at Brickyard, the light was not favorable. But the color was irresistible so I made a couple of exposures and chose this one to process.
I cropped off as much of the white sky as I could without clipping the treetops. I considered trying out Photoshop’s new sky replacement tool but really don’t like the idea of faking an image so resisted. And then the light in the trees wouldn’t have matched that in the sky so just as well to leave it. It is what it was. And my pride remains intact. 🙂
My favorite part of this image is the little squiggle of orange at the bottom.
