I love birch trees! They're my favorite type of tree, and the first I learned to identify when I was younger, because of their light-colored bark. This was shot in a grove of birch trees on the Jesup Trail, in Acadia National Park. Due to the fact that it was mid-day and the lighting was harsh, I decided to take an abstract approach to the shot. I used a longer shutter (and narrow aperture) to blur the trees by moving the camera from up to down. It would have worked much nicer with a tripod, but I'm pleased with it anyways!
