A: Do you know?

It was an overcast wintry day in South Dakota, when I decided to travel the back roads in search of a high key photo.

On my way back to town I saw this tree and viola, there was my photo. Two hours or so of driving around and it was finally all worth the gas and frustration. This is the only photo I took. Sometimes I just can't see the forest for the trees.
