Tree in Late Fall
On my bike ride yesterday I went by this golf course, which I always do. I saw in the distance this solitary tree, but realized that it was too far to get with my iPhone which I always bring on my bike rides, just in case. So after the ride, I got in the car and got my camera with the 100-400mm telephoto lens and drove back to the scene. Here's where the story gets amazing... I assumed my photo was going to be the solitary tree, from top to bottom against the background. But my zoom lens was zoomed out all the way, and when I looked through the viewfinder, I saw a close-up view like this, and realized that the picture was so much better with just part of the foreground tree in the frame! So sometimes happenstance plays a part in photography!
