Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrast

There are dark shadows on the earth but its lights are stronger in the contrast (Charles Dickens).

I took this shot last 23 January 2011 when I climbed the mystical mountain of Arayat in Pampanga. I was savoring my “take 5” under a dying tree at one point of the descent when the dead twigs in front of me caught my attention. So, I pointed my camera towards the twigs while taking advantage of the fading sun’s view in the distance. The upshot turned out incredibly artistic–according to my eyes.
