It's not often a processing "look" suggests itself above some kind of realism, especially in landscape work, but this time it did. I drove past this tree twice: on the way out, it struck me as a pleasantly gnarled shape; on the way back, not only that but the hard sunlight was perfectly illuminating one side of it. With modertately dark clouds behind, an awesome contrast. It faded while I found somewhere to park and then as I ran back along the road the light reappeared one last time. Got it.
