Hairy Tree Branches Are Cool :)

I took this image at the same time when I was out and about with my long 70-200mm f/2.8 lens. It really does have me looking further afield for photos, as I can get closer to them, and get the compositions I want.

On this photo, I was watching what the late afternoon sun was showing me, and I noticed how it was playing so beautifully on the upper branches of this strange-looking conifer tree. The shapes the branches took were just so interesting with the way they hung down. It reminded me of Spanish moss, which I love. So I composed this shot.

Shot with my 70-200mm lens at f/2.8.
