And then there were 2

Remember this shot from a few weeks ago?

Death

A sad thing happened over the weekend.
One tree mysteriously disappeared! It was there last Friday, but yesterday (Monday) it was gone. Vanished! I could not believe my eyes! "Where did it go to?" I asked myself. I looked around but I couldn't find it. It's not even lying around on the ground any more. So my conclusion is that it didn't fall over – which I thought was what happened at first – but instead it was chopped for firewood, I presume. This just shows you that you always need to be on the lookout for photo opportunities. Because before you know it, they are gone.

And then there were 2.

If you look at the scene now I believe it lost a lot of its character and flair. I guess it is not going to take long before the rancher decides to take the two remaining trees to their last resting place as well. That would mean one less photo opportunity for me on my way to work.

Ps. Do you see now why I was so happy with that fog? I just don't think this background does this subject any good.
