winter pictures - part 7

As you can see I make fall pictres and winter pictres of the same tree in one session. After the fall picture is done I pluc off all foliage and the winter silhouette is ready.

flowering ash, Fraxinus ornus, 60 cm, Chinese pot, collected in Italy
linden, Tilia platiphyllos, 55 cm, from nursery stock, this has developed very nicely. It is getting show ready vry soon. This I have never exhibited so far.

Playing with backgrounds and luminescence

Now this is most interesting. The background has an enormous effect. I love this!
What did we do in the old days when the October weather outside was so depressing?
