Close but definitively no cigar -- of any kind.

Birches are getting the characteristic spring-time redness of their upper branches though.

You are out there. You and your camera. You can shoot or not shoot as you please. Discover the world, Your world. Show it to us. Or we might never see it.

I bet you, one week from now, the wood anemones will have sprung out. Then I might claim my cigar ;)

I like the rendering of the scene Frank. Very nice background blur and colors.

Frank,

yea, the concept grows with abstraction. When I took the shot I only thought of connecting the poles and using stark colors to mimik the Bjørn / Birna style.

As you asked: yes, another field day for the Neo Noct on the D500
