(… like I do every day).

Myeah, I know… I guess I’m a bit ignorant when it comes to that. I love nature, I love taking pictures in nature, but in a lot of cases I know the big lines of what I’m shooting, but have no clue specifically what I’m taking pictures of.
Bad, bad, I know…
Rule 1 in photography: Know what’s in your picture.
I know what’s in my pictures. It’s a tree. A bird. A mushroom. A flower.
So today I was taking a walk out in the forest and came across a spruce-like tree. And all I ever knew was that spruces and the likes stay green the whole year around. So when I saw a yellow spruce-like tree I was wondering. Until my better half (who’s a lot smarter than I am anyway) told me it wasn’t a spruce, but a larch.
And sure, they turn yellow. And even lose their needles. It looks funny to me for some reason.

Just for the fun of it, I took it to Photoshop and inverted the colors.
How’s that for a Christmassy feeling? 😉
