TreeSquared: Winter Trees Enhanced

For Becky’s penultimate day of trees squared, I decided I’d go with her theme somewhat. Here are some winter trees, enhanced!

One of the most wonderful features of the Moorings campus is the number and variety of trees! I am not a fan of winter in general, but I am awed by the complexity of their interwoven branches, which are best seen when they have no leaves to cover them.

I love playing with SnapSeed on my cellphone, so I enhanced (and squared) some of the shots!

This next set of comparisons was actually taken in early May – I just like the effect! And these are not squared but see below.

Here is the altered image squared:

I don’t know why this enhanced picture came out so blurry!

I decided to include this photo taken in February – it’s not enhanced/altered, I just like it!
