As I mentioned when I posted my January “Best of”, I did not think of that picture as awesome, although it is a very good one.
Again, maybe I should have titled this series: “Selections of 2011”.
This February picture is however “up there” with my bests of 2011.
My wife and I went snow shooing that day. As we were coming back and the sun was setting, I crouched in the snow to capture this bush against the sun.
I know that it is an effect that is often taken, it is nonetheless one that I affectionate a lot.
In this shot, I like how the shadows of bush run a diagonal line from the bottom left and how the clouds run an almost parallel path from the upper right corner of the frame.
