- Description: Winter is the best time to hike the Florida Trail. The temperatures are mild and the bugs minimal. I captured this image about two hours after the sunset. A full moon was rising and there were whispy clouds moving through the sky. There was a grove of dead trees that were creating interesting silhouettes against the sky. I put my camera on a little joby tripod under the tree and painted the tree with my head lamp. The clouds blurred and the colors of the wood popped out.
- Gear: Canon 5D MKII
