This image replaced the existing March take from 2012 in the “Cottonwood at Lake Henshaw” gallery (which started the whole series). I guess I should have mixed feelings about replacing that one, but I’m actually just glad that I was able to finally remove the old image: it didn’t ripen too well, let alone grow on me – I really didn’t like it very much, anymore.
The new image actually comes after I already added the April take on the tree – simply because I had such a hard time picking just one. Coming from sunny Santa Ysabel in the morning, it was amazing to drive into unexpected fog at the Lake Henshaw basin – I wandered around the tree in fog and just could not get enough. It’s safe to say that I totally over-worked the scene. :)
