"In the still water of the fountains one saw the splash of human faces, ignited by these gold and scarlet stars as they rose hissing into heaven like thirsty swans." from Justine by Lawrence Durrell.

After studying trees by Giorgione, Rubens, and Rosa Saturday evening, I had to go out with my camera and try and get some nice tree shots. These were taken around 9am this Sunday morning with the sun as a backlight.

I had the camera, Nikon D7000, on a tripod in aperture mode at f9 with ISO set to 100. I removed the UV filter and replaced it with a polarizer. The shutter was tripped by the timer. The shutter speeds were around 1/25th of a second. And I fiddled with the exposure comp to try and save highlights and still retain shadow detail.
