On the last day that I was out with my old camera and it froze on me every two minutes or so, making focussing almost impossible, I created a few of my very favourite images, amongst which is this one, that hangs in my hallway on Xpozer which shows all the details in the bark and leaves of the front tree so vividly. I never get bored looking at this picture. This one is special though as when I was photographing it, some of these trees were already marked to be chopped down.
