Yesterday I re-visited one of the most beautiful places in the Southern Black Forest, called Schauinsland. This is a beech tree that got its shape from the steadily blowing wind.

The weather was really uncomfortable (fog, wind, heavy snowfall, -5°C) but perfect for shots like this one. I'm really happy with how it came out. I didn't convert the photo to b&w but due to the fog there were no colors. So it's a "natural" b&w. :)

 

Looks better on black at my photoblog.

 

Sorry, Martha! Hab erst an dich gedacht, als ich schon oben war. Beim nächsten Mal sag ich früher Bescheid. :o
