Framed

Finding a foreground element to use as a frame for the rest of an image is a cool way to add some extra interest to a scene. When I found this lone tree sitting behind a barbed wire fence, I knew immediately that I wanted to compose a shot like this. Finding that exact spot where I was able to get the tree right between the two middle strands of wire and still be able to include two fenceposts took a bit of moving around, but as soon as I had it composed I knew it was a winner. Hopefully you all agree!

Love how that tree fits perfectly in between those two wires. Great job.

This so reminds me of a few shots I took while stormchasing in Nebraska, although my barbed wire didn’t have any trees 🙂
