I've been reading Ken Rockwell's website a bit. That inspired me to try this photo. I'm not blaming him in any way, just mentioning his influence in me going outside with a vision.

Anyway, this image is pretty close to my vision. It turns out I needed to change the composition slightly as it was easier to move the camera than than the trees. I drove through an undeveloped area in town that is frequented by dog walkers and 4x4 drivers until I found two biggish trees that lined up correctly. I used my lenses smallest aperture to attempt to keep focus on both near and far trees.

This looks a little oversharpened, but I like the composition!

Wish this was more about the bark and the moss growing on it than the scene, for this Challenge.

Too much to focus on in this picture. They're all great elements, but try getting them separate from eachother.

Interesting how the trunk on the left and a branch from the tree on the right frame the one in the background.
