This lone pine tree stands in Ganong Nature Park, a recreation area for the town of St. Stephen, New Brunswick, overlooking the St. Croix River as it flows into Passamaquoddy Bay. This park is a wonderful place at any time of year for landscape and coastal photography, as well as astro-photography, as it's in a dark sky area, though just a few kms from town. This particular tree stands alone near one end of the park. I took this photo on a November day that was mostly cloudy, with the sun occasionally breaking through the cloud cover and lighting up patches of sky as it did. I lined the tree up with one such patch and took this shot. I wasn't expecting much, given the cloudy conditions, but I like how it turned out!
