“Bough’s of Pine”

Amidst the glory of Mother Nature’s creations, lays magnificent boughs of pine.

Through frigid temps and ruthless time, these boughs anticipate and await the coming of spring when they may yet again spread their seed, and a rebirth begins.

 This was shot with a Cokin Filter simply placed in front of the lens as my digital will not accept filters, and I was playing with different light aspects. I am pleased with the resulting soft and transmitted lighting in this image and the focal point being wrapped in soft hues of color as apposed to just a white background. I think it also pulls out the crisp edges of the needles a bit more too having sacrificed some of the color and crispness of the cones. Overall I am pleased with this shot.
