Reach

Reaching

Today we had a snowstorm followed by an ice storm. I headed out into the backyard around 3:45 to snap some photos of the ice encrusted trees. I started with my 18-55mm lense, but felt the sea of trees was making it hard to show these tiny branches. I switched over to my 50mm lense and dropped the aperture down to 2.2 and then 1.8 to get this photo.

I like how much the branch looks like a hand reaching out. Even if it s a three fingered hand.
