Two Trees

By LeighRebecca  
I managed a brief climb up to Captain Cook's monument yesterday, as the sky transformed into the best sunset I've seen for quite a while. Before I got to the monument I saw these two trees near a broken stone wall. I really tried to frame the sunset in the arch between the trees, but I guess that would have been too contrived anyway. I think the frost and sun on the stones make the shot. There are a couple of variations to look at, and I'll probably post a couple of shots looking out over the view from the edge later, but these were the most striking shots I got.
Thanks for looking, and for c&c's on my pic of Josh the other day.

difficult to decide which one I prefer, I think I'm gonna go with V3 for the colours and composition Smile

All three versions are stunning but V3 is better composed/framed IMHO.

3,2,1 for me Leigh, but all three are wonderful shots. What's that shiny thing in the sky?

V3 for me...think the comp is better
The trees make a very strong, striking silhouette - the third version seems to combine the best elements of the other two to me.

GOOD SHOT. Well done with the sun, Lol, think I like No3 best, but all three are good captures of that elusive thing called the sun, well done Leigh.
Regards Steve.
