Ghost Tree, Storm Clouds, Hills, B&W

Steven Tze Photography

With a lingering storm and another coming in, I decided to make a quick drive out to Mokelumne Hill in Calaveras County to snap some photographs of this ghost tree that fellow photographer, Bill Tracy, mentioned to me a few months ago.  We had met along Hwy 124 while I was parked on the side of the highway snapping photos of Dead Trees, Stratified Skies and he stopped to see what I was shooting at.

As has been the case this day, while there were great texture in the clouds, the rest of the landscape was rather bland but well structured for a possible black & white photograph.  The middle set of hills have a darker overall tone than both the foreground and distant hills.  There was just enough of a break in the clouds to backlight the ghost tree perfectly.
