This is a two image composite of a tree near Clare, Michigan shot during a snowstorm. I was drawn to this tree because I thought it resembled the Ents from J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings. Because of the tree's close proximity to the trees behind it the tree always blended into the background. On this blistery winter day the wind kicked up the snow just enough to add visual separation between the tree I wanted to photograph and the woods behind it.
