Hands Raised to Heaven by Nenette Yu

September 2023 - Hands Raised to Heaven

About the Image(s)

This was taken at sunset in April. I love taking pictures of trees especially when there are no leaves. They can take on different interesting forms for me. This one in particular looked to me like bony hands raised to heaven, hence the title. I also luckily was able to capture a lone bird perched on one of the branches.

Canon R5, f/4.5, 105mm focal length, ISO 100, 1/500 exposure

It's a very peaceful silhouette and the title really fits. The bird located on 2/3's is a needed inclusion. I really like this Nenette.   Posted: 09/11/2023 06:28:08

That is a lovely sunset and the tree is standing proud, the bird has landing and sitting in just the perfect spot for you. Very pleasing image and must have been a pleasure to watch this go down.   Posted: 09/14/2023 05:41:31

It's simple silhouette image that bring the story. The tree like a human life at the sunset period. Yet, it's still can be a place for other to depend on like that bird. Nice image.   Posted: 09/14/2023 08:18:42
