With no time to get home and walk the pup while shooting a few photographs before dark, it was time to pull to the side of the road and make a couple of snapshots of these two oak sentinels. Too much exposure and the delicate branches are washed out. Not enough exposure and the delicate branches look heavy, and well, not delicate.
Tomorrow, we shall have Oak #2.
