Dancing with the Trees
-----------
Tree Tango--Somewhere in Death Valley, California.

This image had been in my gallery for a long while. Did some extra dodging and burning, integrated some dance partners into the picture--a few New
Jersey turkey vultures and a shiny plane (one passes my office window about once every 30 seconds).

Infrared image made using a converted EOS 10D camera body

I love the shapes of the trees. The composition and IR do make it appear they are dancing. Very nicely done!

This is some outstanding work, Michelle. I love the way the foliage came out. The leaves look bleached. Good title. The trees appear to be dancing. The vultures scout ahead to insure the way is safe for their queen.
