Photo-Heart Connection February 2013
Walking the dogs around the neighborhood one evening last week, we saw this magnificent tree with the full moon in it's branches. We ran home to get the camera and snap some pics before the moon rose above the branches.
While we were standing there admiring the tree and snapping pics, some of the neighbors came out to see what was so interesting (Possum? Owl? Accident?) No just the moon in this old oak tree!
One guy was working on his truck in the driveway. This tree lives in front of the house he's renting. He informed us that it would be cut down one day soon because it's causing havoc with the sewer system.
As for the processing on this image, I did a little spot-healing in the neighborhood to "turn off" streetlamps and porch lights. Then I added 1 layer of Jerry Jones' Shadowhouse Creations Square-129 Texture. This midnight blue texture has a spiral thing going on that makes a nice reflection of the radiating moonlight and tree silhouette. Most of the picture we took are a little blurry--making me realize I need a tripod for this kind of night photography with longer shutter speeds.
