Marshy Point Lone Tree

Rising from a field in marshlands of eastern Maryland, this dying tree stood alone against the cold springtime sky.

I find myself drawn more and more towards black and white photography. Not exclusively, but I do prefer it. The starkness of these branches against the sky stands out all the more in this version of the photo, where the color picture was marred by a confusion of colors from the newly sprouted and standing dead grasses.
