Last week, I put out a question on my Facebook page asking if anyone had a great tree in their neighborhood. I received a few responses including one remarking on the near-peak maple at the corner of Bowden and Bessom. As the sky cleared after a light rain and the light dipped lower in the sky, I decided to head over and check out the tree. The report was spot on and I quickly set up in the parking lot at Gilbert and Cole to capture the maple.
The most nagging part of this image was what to do about the large electrical wires. They would have been pretty difficult to remove without a trace and I decided to use them as leading lines that would guide the eye directly toward the tree.
