Looks better with music:
Thank you, Deb.
I was hoping and feeling that it would be good if the cops did not come by and ask me what the heck I was doing somewhere between my house and my neighbor's house at 1:40 a.m. EDT (12:40 EST on the EXIF data).
So, it was not a romantic moment, but a technical moment actually of trying different shutter speeds once I had settled on f/8 at ISO 800.
I feel when we are able to capture an image that captures an emotion we were experiencing - at that exact moment, we have captured a slice of our lives forever. I love how the longer branch's leaves are reaching outward toward the light.
A moment captured that you will always remember what you were feeling or thinking about at that moment.
Yeah, it's the risk to go beyond the expected, to push into dangerous territory that makes this picture something special. Not terrible at all; a powerful image in my book.
