Gnarled

Gnarled - M9, 28 Elmarit, ~f/5.6, 1/1500s, ISO 160
Gnarled branches lit up by the mid day sun make for an interesting study in lines and shape.  I made this image in the late morning at Patriarch Grove this past summer.  The final mile on the road to the grove was closed due to a large snow drift requiring a hike.  It was my first time at this location and I was mainly interested in scouting locations for a later shoot.  Though I typically don't make images with the harsh mid day sun, in this case the isolation of this tree and its gnarled limbs were too tempting to pass up.
