I liked the stark look of these dead limbs and the way they seem to reach for the sky. The sand surround makes a good base. Taken in the Death Valley National Park with a medum format camera.

Très beau noir et blanc! J'aime beaucoup les formes de ces vieilles branches, ça apporte un coté graphique à l'ensemble.

Good morning Don,
I like the silver sheen that goes by that choice of color. The branches act as if they stretch to the sky and ask for the life-giving water. It is a very beautiful image with a stylish expression. I like it very much. I would like to give you 5 stars ***** and more. This morning the sun is shining in between and the sky is covered with large gray clouds. It rains every day in between. The outside temperature is exactly 10.3 ° Celsius +. More this evening via e-mail. We wish you all the best, health and a very nice sunny day, including your family and friends. Thank you very much for all your nice comments and fidelity. Take care, my friend.
Dear greetings Christel and Detlev

yes absolutely -- those are the exact reasons I find this image so fascinating. Great work, as usual.

Beautiful. I can almost feel the sand in my shoes. Nice framing to sort of peak in the center but not be too symetrical,
