Guardian Oak

Hillside Cemetery, Minneapolis.
Its the end of May; all we have to show for May was the memories. May proved to be cold, damp, and windy. The Minnesota Fishing Opener was delayed in northern Minnesota due to the lakes being locked in with ice. The ice finally receeded mid May. More cloudy days than sunny with below normal temps. A sign global warming is over? We shall remember this cold dreary May 2008 as the year we didn't go fishing on the Opener.
Yep, another HDR image, this time in black and White:

  1. It is avery dramatic image. HDR is definitely gaining a foothold. It can be overdone, but this is a wonderful example of what these kind if images can produce.
