Art in the Bosque

Rick Santorum and his ilk might look at this first picture and deduce that it was arranged by satanists and witches.  Occasionally this tree fork in the Rio Grande Bosque gets some creativity forced on it.  I took this picture last weekend.

Of course, these things do seem to take on a life of their own after a while.  I took this picture today.  Personally, I think it is a sign from extra terrestrials to their spies on earth that the invasion is called off due to climate change.

There's kind of an evolution going on.

I like the top picture. It's hard to take pictures down there, hard to simply it down to one or two things what with all that background clutter. Use shadows. Very interesting.

I meant to say "simplify." But yes, the background gets washed out by the sunlight. That what's in shadow is highlighted. It stands normal convention on its head. It looks like you may have done something with the focal length, too, so that it's less well defined back there. Very cool.
