nice shot of these Cottonwood trees with fine POV,
they seem to be againt daylight (en contre-jour)
and i love that effect of them in dark silhouette
and the background being more clear, TFS

Bonjour Bob, close to be neighbours and I can see that you are photographing trees too! I just posted a bark picture. Your picture is so beautiful, I know it's not that obvious to find the good pov to shoot such "simple" pictures of trees... well, mine are always surroundered by other trees ;-)) Yet, it is a great composition once more and beautifully lit. Thank you !

Hola Sr. Bob.
There is a beautiful old Mexican song talking about two little trees singed by "Linda Ronstand" and Your photo brings a lot of memoires to me.
Great work here, against the back light.
Took two beers last night.

Hi Bob. I would think the two trees stand out on the flat open land. I see one tree has lost its leaves yet the other has not.I like the patterns in the green field at the top of the hill. well done TFs.

Well, I've heard of cottonwood trees, in a song somewhere, but didn't magine they really were trees.
Now I see they are, and they are a large Poplar no less. No wonder the wood is so soft.
Today I learn sumfink.

Another case of simple but beautiful. I'm wondering why the one has lost most of its leaves and the other is still pretty full. There is definitely a feel of the approaching winter. I love the row of pines(?) in the background.
A wonderful composition - symetrical and contrasting - excellent. It always makes me smile when Americans refer to 3 generations as old - in the village where I live, if you family has not been here since the Bronze Age, you are not considered local - and we only moved here in 1988!!

nice capture of the two trees on this flat land, the pov is fine and so is the composition, what make me think is the difference in the leafs in both the trees. looks like one is getting bald like me :-0).

Yesterday looks like it was grey and dull, just like we had today. A classic Shannon image, very nice work my friend.

This looks a bit like the bleak landscapes around here at this time of year. I like your focus on the two Cottonwood trees with the line of pines in the distance. A beautiful hint of colours too.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla
A fine pair of landscapes on that pair of cottonwoods Bob, showing them quite pleasantly from different aspects and moods. The present capture looks a little like an old deguerrotype to me, did a WS on it on monochrome, hope you like it my friend.

An interesting composition.
The starkness of the almost silhouetted trees against the well lit back drop is very good.
Very good POV and DOF.
Another lovely landscape.
