(say that 3 times fast)
Although it was mid-day I had to go out and take pictures! Maybe a nearby wooded area would provide some interesting trees in the shade? I ended up with these two different shots.
I like the first (B&W) because of the magical feeling from the repeating shapes of the branches over the trail...leading who knows where.....? Might be nice to capture in early am if there is fog/mist.
The second I like for the branches more or less curving in unison. (I had to try for the starburst but it might be distracting or too gimmicky).
Both had highlights reduced and shadows brought out in Lightroom, plus sundry other adjustments in the "Basic" panel.
