Twisted Birches

By joolsb  
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.

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.

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