Nice capture, warm colors, good dof and composition! I like the waqy you framed too. TFS!
I did a little work in land surveying. While doing that I picked up a book on identifying dead wood. The bark (still available) makes this one easily identifiable as a pine. The identification of dead wood becomes important for a land surveyor when they are trying to positively identify a land corner marked by witness trees. Witness trees don't last forever, so sometimes you only find a stump-hole. And, if you are lucky maybe a little bit of dead wood. Thus the book...
I like your POV on this shot. I think the top 1/4 could have been cropped, but otherwise this one works.
ps So, what are you focused on as a computer scientist?
