Macricostas Preserve, Washington, Connecticut.
This birch tree had more bark curling off than any I’ve seen and it seemed a natural for this kind of shot.
I had a tough time metering this with the X70 and took a shot with each of its three meters. In the end, I used the one that had the most detail in the branches knowing I could probably pull the trunk and bark out of the shadows. Learning a new camera takes time.
