It has been a while. For now, I will spare you the details and just share this photo. It is one of my favorite from what I will call the “Burned to Beauty” series.
This is one of the numerous trees in Custer State Park that was a victim of the wildfire a while back. Through the charred bark, remnants of the base shined through. The blackened tone accentuated the lines and shapes embracing the bark and giving it a distinctive appearance. The core of the tree peaking through looked like what I imagine an area covered with hardening lava with burning lava still flowing underneath would look like. For that, I chose to enhance the colors to give it what I consider an amazingly mesmerizing type of appearance. I hope that you like this picture as much as I do.
Until the next time, have a beautiful day and tomorrow.
