Last Fall I spent a couple of evenings looking for compositions of Birch Trees and Red Maple leaves. In previous posts you will come across the Birch and Maple theme. The Birch Trees have marvellous texture on their trunks. So this time I decided to find something that I could do up close. Strolling through a grove of Birch Trees I came across the above composition. I set up the Canon EOS 7D on the tripod for a vertical shot. There was a blackish piece on the white trunk where maybe at one time there had been a branch. It formed a V shape. Using this as a focal point and the red Maple leaves surrounding it, a composition was created.
Well that is it for this week so until next time happy trails.

great colours….. thank mother nature for that one
We have an abundance of Birch Trees in my part of the country.
Was it taken recently?
Ben I took this late last October.It would be interesting to see what I can come up with in a winter type of scene with Birch Trees.

That sounds like you might have just challenged yourself. I look forward to the result.
Very nice photograph. Love the juxtaposition between the texture of the birch bark and the detail in the changing leaves. As always, thanks for sharing your work!
