[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was taken on a summer trip to Glacier National Park in which it rained every day we were there! There is a saying in English about there being a silver lining back of every cloud you see. The silver lining in this case was some very interesting photo ops.

Hello Evelynn, its a superb shot. Excellent composition and I love the atmospheric backdrop to the silhouetted tree. I wish it were mine. Very good work my landscape friend.

Perfecto disparo. Hermoso el colorido en primer término, que contrasta con la silueta del árbol y el fondo con brumas...
Muy bonita esta imagen, me gusta.
Saludos, JL.

that is very beautiful..the tree says 'i wont be beat'...the rocks and the ruggedness convey the reality of being there instead of in carpet slippers looking at a pc screen..
good note as well..silver lining etc
very well taken opportunity

Hi Evelynn

I love the silhouettes of the tree and the low clouds. Lovely composition. Sometimes rainy days are more interesting than the ones with the plain blue skies

Hi Evelynn,
Great landscape! I really like this one. The silhouetted tree with an amazing background is perfect.I like how there are clouds yet the mountains are still peeping through. Excellent balanced composition, i like the rocks in the foreground. I think this would make an excellent B&W shot. (See my workshop).

Hi Evelynn

A lovely composition. I like the placement of the tree and how you show it as a silhouette. Excellent work. Thank you!

Hi Evelynn

Another great landscape from you!
And another one with and excellent atmosphere...a bit colder this time but intensly the same :)
Great perspective here - i like the POV, the nice details throughout, the great exposure and very nice framing.
A splendid composition!

Bravo and TFS

Hi Evelynn,
Why in the .... did you save these pictures for later. They are so beautiful and fit the rest of your Glacier photos from that year perfectly. I love the limited range of color tones a lot. It's more restfull to my eyes. Great silhoute and again a great moody photo.

Good morning Evelynn,
The details are nice, clear and sharp.
Good colours, lighting and exposure. The POV is good.
Well composed and well framed.
Thanks for posting, enjoy the rest of the weekend.

I like the mood of the weather with the wind-swept tree in the FG Evelynn.

The siloutte aspect reminds me of the raven, and that works very well for me. I am also impressed by the color (and detail) in the fg -- pretty hard on a grey day like this. Great job, Evelynn!
