I'm not sure how this will go down as it's a long way away from the 'traditional' landscape shot but what the heck. I like birches and these particularly exciting examples were found in a forest in the darkest Jura - somewhere in rural France - decorated with moss and resplendent with new growth.

The limited palette has made this a very special image!

Green and grey, no other colour involved. The misty sky served you well.

I've been trying to get some images very similar to this - I like how you've captured it. There is something so wonderful about moss growing on old trees.

Wonderful image, colours and presentation and a welcome change from a 'traditional' landscape.

Probably my favourite trees too.
Not that I know these individuals of course. But birches adapt to their surroundings and can become regimented or individualistic and chaotic.
You have encapsulated their personality in this stylish image, I feel. Moira agrees that the photo deserves my U.A.

Bill

Lovely greens and greys. Can't explain how the comp works, but it does. Quite a result for one you weren't sure about.
