I think the part that I love the most about this picture is just the perspective on it!
I love the shadows in this picture. The contrast between light and dark is so stark, I just love it.
This last picture is perhaps my most favorite picture that I have ever shot from a camera. It was taken with an extremely old digital camera so I will probably never be able to enlarge this picture to the size that I would like to (big enough to go over a mantle) without it being all grainy.
