Today is Day 231 of this year's 365-day-photoblog-challenge and we finally get a "day off", that is, a day when we can post whatever we want ("your choice").

And when I get to choose, I am always going to choose nature and black & white.

In a previous blog, I mentioned that I am inspired by Ansel Adams , who is one of the most important nature photographers and environmentalists of modern time.

This photo is my humble attempt to pay homage to him and his work.

I like the almost X-Ray effect and the extreme clarity of the sharp thorns against the pitch black background.
