I have wanted to photograph this tree...

for a couple of years, but the timing never worked.
Earlier today I got a chance but only had my Android device

B&W conversion done in-camera using "Eiffel" template

I have to take another look regarding the "cables"... this photo was done in HD mode before converting to b&w, I found that is almost always a good choice when shooting with the Android phone cam... Casey .
