A little while back Les and I were lucky enough to head out on a foggy morning. One of my favorite images from that trip was of the tree, not because of the image but because of the mist around the tree and the way it isolated it from the background. The bottom half of the image, especially in black white, looked great but the top half just wasn't as good.
That's when I remembered an image I had seen by Wyn Bullock, and I had a moment of inspiration. I found an image of light rays piercing through thick dark grey clouds and blended the two images together. It added a sense of drama to the image that I liked to fit the bottom half of the image.
