This image was taken close to home while out scouting a location for another image. The soft yellow light on the tree captured my attention and the resulting images become one of my favorites. The bank had given way and the tree fallen over with just a portion dipping underwater. The lack of a breeze kept the lake water clam during the capture. Finding situations like this close to home is what keeps me exploring the area around me.
I've since visited the tree and it is completely dead. So there are now no chance of making a similar image with fall colors.
