This is one of the trees lining the walk around Capitol Lake. I took a series of photos and used the panorama tool in Photoshop to stitch them together. I do that so that to enable me to get extreme detail and to avoid anything except sky in the background. I tried this with the contrast increased to have all the tree just black … but liked it better with the silver look and bark detail visible.
