Cornell University Engineering Quad Oak Tree

I've been looking at this incredible oak tree on the Engineering Quad at Cornell University for a long time.  The other day I noticed that around noon time the southern Sunlight would shine through two building to create great contrast of lighting on the leafless branches.

I like the effect of the wide angle lens that created a interesting effect with the upper branches.

One final touch with HDR processing created a Tim Burton type of creation.  I feel like the branches are getting ready to reach down and grab me.

The frosty fog this morning was incredible.  I had to go out and take a few photos.  I chased the fog all over, and it was never in the places that I wanted it to be.  This was the best of the fog/tree photos from this morning.  This is on Cemetery Lane near McLean, NY.

Frosty Trees

It was a frosty morning, and I chased the fog around.  I ended up deciding to use one of the photos that didn't have fog.  I liked the ice on the trees, and the frost on the green fields.  I thought the barn added just enough color.  This photo was taken on Elm Street extension in Groton between Salt Road and Chaplain Road.
