The Willows Sway at Sunset

I think willows are by far my favorite tree at the moment.  Followed closely by the birch.  More exotic ones are definitely on the list, but as far as close to home, these get me every time.  A storm coming in doesn’t always mean the end of your outdoor shooting, and they can create some awesome sunsets.
