Capture What Counts Photography

Day 145 – Painted Tree

On my way to grab lunch, I saw these trees with white bark (birch?) and orange leaves.  They really caught my eye because of the strong color contrast.  I decided to use the Orton effect, and it came out looking kinda like a painting.  It really made the tree trunk and the leaves stand out.

  3. Beautiful colors, I think is so weird when the bark on the tree is white like that but it is so interesting to look at as well!
