80/365 Birch bark

I like looking out in the late afternoon and evening and seeing the sunlight striking this tree.

It's a young birch tree, and its light-colored bark, in comparison to most of the other nearby trees, really stands out in the sun.

I've been meaning to photograph the bark for ages and just haven't gotten around to it. Until now!

It reminds me a little of the aspen trees I saw last year in Colorado. The bark of both trees is lighter than most, making them stand out against a green and brown scene. My photographer's eye likes the contrast it creates.

Camera: Canon 40D with 60mm macro lens, 1/125s, f/5.6 at ISO 100 at about 8:00 p.m.
