In late May of 2013, I had gone out on a foggy morning looking for a new spot to shoot.  As I drove around town, I found myself going past the Star of the Sea cemetery and quickly pulled over when I saw this incredible tree among the headstones.

It was difficult getting the full size of the tree in the frame while also finding a good foreground element to anchor the image.  The decision to process the final shot as black and white was easy in comparison.
