I did these in B&W, because today has been grey, and windy and rainy, and it was horrible going out to shoot the tree. Took my umbrella to protect my camera and lenses whilst I was changing them. Didn’t take the tripod as carrying camera bag, umbrella and that would have been too much, especially as the wind was trying to steal my brolly, so had to use a high ISO.
I think you can make out the silvery water streams running down the bark.
and finally I chose this next one as my shot of the day because I can see a treeman with rain dripping off his nose, blowing raspberries at the weather.
