I took this photograph because I was momentarily taken by the two oak leaves still sticking to their branches on 15 February, after months of high winds.

Figure 1. Barren oak outside the author’s office window. Scranton, PA. Photo: author.

The sun was near setting, and I also liked the play of the golden light on the boughs against the blue winter sky.

Nikon Z 7ii with Nikkor Z 24-200 mm f/4-6.3 lens.

Figure 1. 200 mm, f/11, ISO 200, 1/60 s.

Edited with Apple Photos.
