This birch is located on the edge of the city, next to an ordinary road, surrounded by houses under construction and cars that flood all. But, the beauty of the tree has done its job, and this birch has not been touched for many years, it does not lead to a building next to it. People admire it and probably the tree will live for many years. In the mist, it was possible to capture the tree without unnecessary urban details, showing the natural charm of a lonely spreading birch. A wonderful and unusual weather for winter was chosen - a fog with light snowfall, which made it possible to take full advantage of the atmospheric perspective.
And suddenly the gaze fell on a piece of glass that lay nearby - in an instant the idea came to try to diversify the scene. A simple snapshot of a tree is of little interest to anyone. By the way, this piece of glass perfectly caught the reflection. The glass was neatly placed on the fingers, flat, in front of the lens at the bottom of the frame. The end of glass was specially taken in the frame - it was he who created the effect of turquoise sea greens in this plot. The tilt of the glass also changed slightly to catch the reflections of the birch and the surrounding plans. For the inexperienced spectator, a feeling of turquoise ice or a completely flat surface of the water, which has a single tree, is created. You'd be surprised, but after taking a photo there were no special manipulations in the photo editor. Only an easy brightness-contrast correction. So simple, in the middle of the urban environment, with a piece of glass in hand, with fog and snowfall in service, near the road with roaring cars, a piece of silence, tranquility, lightness and cleanliness with turquoise hues and the smell of the sea turned out.
