As luck would have it …
This Thanksgiving Monday it was cool and showery looking out of the window, as one does, I was struck by the combination of birch tree trunks and golden birch leaves forming a backdrop to a berry-rich rowan tree that has begun to lose it’s leaves and thereby was revealing the birch trunks. A gorgeous combination – made all the richer in the subdued light of a rainy day – sunshine rarely makes for the best photographs.
I took a number of photographs and then subjected them to “post-processing” which photographer-speak for computerised tweaking. Once upon a time, and I am old enough to have had hands-on experience, this was done in the dark room with noxious chemicals. The computer is better and a lot healthier.
Anyway, purely a personal opinion, but I rather think this is going to be one of my favourite photographs – here are some variations I made and which I hope you will enjoy. The “original” and to my eye, the best, is on my other website – have a look at https://greenbirding.ca
