Tree With Orange Lichen

I made this photograph the first time I saw this tree. I passed by it several times after that and each time, stopped and thought “that would make a great photograph”.

The angle of the tree, the color of the lichen, and the purple hue of the background give the image an enchanting feel. It’s the kind of scene that begs to be photographed or painted, or just admired as you walk by.
