Isaac, thanks for your comments. I found Los Osos to be a fairly difficult area in which to shoot. It is not an open environment like an oak and grass woodland. There are many trees with many branches in very close proximity to each other. So, it is difficult (impossible) to isolate a tree. The sun was just rising so it was fairly dark in amongst the trees but the sky was becoming quite bright. This was my first visit to this spot and one of my main goals was to try out a lens I had just acquired (Zeiss 21 in Pentax mount). I have made a print on Epson Hot Press Bright 13x19 which I find very pleasing. The jpeg does little justice to the print. I see my oak images as portraiture.
