What. A. Morning.

I’ve been eyeing up this tree for the longest time. I wish I hadn’t a full-frame crop sensor or could step back back just a little further, but this one hits me, especially with the lighting on the bench.

This was no easy edit. Long before the sun came up, it was a beautiful morning. And I thought I already had a set of photos I was in love with after playing in the grass with the water droplets.

Then this tree stole the show. It was difficult to choose which photo, I’m very drawn to the photo without the sun being visible, seeing just the highlights of the tree and grass. And then there’s the center crop. Also, nice.
