Rugged Trees

Sometimes non-color versions of original photos look better. In this case I used computer software (Silver Efex Pro) to transform color photos I made of these rugged trees located above 3500 feet in elevation in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. Trees have to be hearty at this elevation to survive, given the harsh winters and high winds year around. These trees obviously did not make it, but they look old enough to have given it their best.
