Winter Tree

This is what I saw.

What a strange transition. It’s still winter. In the Southeast winter transitions into spring very early. That’s normal. But, the high temperatures are normally still around 65 degrees. For the last couple of days the temperatures have hovered around 82 degrees. Setting new records.

That’s pretty hot for this time of year.

It’s confusing too. The light looks winterish. Still low. Still fairly golden. Most of the trees are still bare, making great silhouettes. But, the temperatures. Ouch.

I guess I can hardly wait for summer. 500 degrees. On a cool day. Time to find someplace way, way north. For the summer months.

The picture. See it. Photograph it. Enhance everything a little bit in post to bring out the colors. Done. Post it. Done.
