Don't think this will score well here, but I enjoy the shot.

I took this photo driving home from visiting my girlfriend. It's high in the mountains, and a snowstorm was raging. It's actually a full moon, and this shot was taken right from the road. To give an idea of what it's like up there, the trees don't have branches on that side due to the winds and extreme conditions, and aren't exactly straight in the first place. I considered straightening but decided not to, liking instead the slanting trees to balance the mountains. An interesting and fun drive home, for sure.

The grain nicely enhances this simple hill top view.

Loving this. Back to comment. Darkness and mystery and grain. Great combo.
I think I would have given it a 10 if the tree to the right was more horizontal. But these are my tastes. Great image!
