I must admit to finding the light on the trees somewhat awkward due to deep shadows, and the scene just didn't have the same appeal as it did under autumnal conditions. I tried a portrait shot (see left) and a couple of landscape shots ... I even tried a conversion to monochrome ... as well as a few different crops. Was I happy with the results? Well, not really :-( Perhaps let me know what you think and how today's shot compares with the one from 2009. I'd be especially intrigued to hear what you think of the black and white image.
