I try to visit my favorite tree at least once a season to see how it looks as the world changes around it. On this day the wind was stiff and the clouds were moving in lines across the sky.
Summers in Oregon City bring clear blue skies with very little cloud cover to speak of, so when I saw the sky had interesting clouds I decided to stop for a few shots of the tree.
Shooting into the sun left a nice silhouette and produced a blue-green lens flare. Overall I decided that the falls were a bit too distracting for the shot, which has a lot going on without it.
It is nice to return to subjects that look interesting no matter what time of year you visit them, and this tree is the one I visit most often of all.
