Trees, reflected

This is an old image from my archives taken late one November afternoon with a low setting sun shining directly onto the tree trunks. It was cold and calm allowing superb reflections in the lake. When I started to expand my interest in monochrome work I looked long and hard at this image and it reminded me of  Ansel Adams’ Aspens, Northern New Mexico, 1958 and I thought it would look great in monochrome. Ansel’s image didn’t have a reflection and these trees aren’t aspens but that doesn’t matter because this is my take on his work. When I undertook the processing of this image I tried to think how Ansel would have done it. I’m happy with the result, I hope the great man would be,too,

You can see the original Ansel Adams image by clicking on its title the title in the text.
