I took this photo with a Nikon D300 camera on my way home from a track barbeque on Oct. 3, 2010. It was decently warm outside, with only a little bit of cloud cover. I stopped to take this picture of the tree on Briggs Field because it still had some leaves, but few enough that you could see the pattern of the branches.
I have a wide angle lens, so the picture shows an exaggerated view of the fractal nature of the branches. I don’t know how long that tree has been there, but I hope it remains a while longer.
Exposure Time: 1/250 sec.
Sensitivity: ISO 100
Effective Focal Length: 27 mm
