235/365 Sycamores

I love that though everything is dying right now in late-fall, the sycamore trees offer a little bit of interest in the dreary landscape.

Their white, peeling bark stands out against the blah, ordinary brown. They're most commonly found growing near water, so in this case, I drove to a nearby creek to find some. I'd imagine that if you were wandering lost in the woods searching for water, looking up and seeing this telltale tree would offer a good natural symbol.

I don't often find myself wandering in such a situation, but it's still interesting to be able to spot water by looking up instead of down.

Camera: Canon 40D, 1/125s, f/4 at ISO 400 at about 5:00 p.m.
