What seemed in this cluster of branches appealing to me was their gorgeous red edges. The trunks of the trees created an intimate complimentary transition between them and the branches. What I wanted to achieve was to fill my frame with the trees, starting with the trunks on the lower side of the picture and ending up with the branches. The melancholic colours of the picture as well as the lack of light due to the clouds, helped me a lot to transfer the feeling of the winter scenery in the area.
