Well, not really a trick. But the setting sun does some very selective lighting, and picking out this curve of branch seemed rather peculiar. Another shot, I think, where scale is a bit ambiguous. The lights and darks are even more vivid on the screen than they were in “real life,” and I love the golden loop backed up against the gray above and the reddish bark chips below. Feels almost like it’s about to burst into flame — like the sunset.
