Tree in the wind
There was such a strong wind that day, that I was actually very surprised that the photos aligned so nicely. I was very happy that I almost always have the lens hood on, as I let go of the tripod for a few seconds and it was immediately blown over by the wind. Without the lens hood, the complete front of the lens would be buried in mud :)
This photo was taken in January near the Red Stone (Cerveny Kamen) castle in western Slovakia.
HDR from three shots, taken with Canon 450D with Sigma 18-200mm lens, from a tripod.
