Sometimes on these family field trips I take a few minutes just to be a photographer… just to stop and observe something in a way that’s more about the photo and less about the “field trip”. Today’s post is just a quick share of a photo I took of a 160 year old Pecan Tree that sits to the right of the mansion at Mount Vernon. As I looked up at the tree I really liked how the sun, directly overhead, was shining through the branches. I decided to take a moment to try to capture a sunburst photo. I like the resulting flare as well. I played with it a bit in post to lift some of the shadows in the branches. This one was just a little moment of fun for me during our family field trip. I hope you like it too.
