I see this dead tree regularly near my home and have been waiting for the right light to compliment it. The other day I was treated to perfect golden hour as the sun burst through the clouds and presented me this show.

I keep looking, I've always wanted to see how it would work as a night shot. Thanks Trev!

No halpaslan. It's a single exposure but there was a fair amount of tone mapping in PS. Thanks for the comment.

That's a great sky, I hope you took some images form the other side of the tree too, i.e. tree not included.

Private Property and barbed wire slowed me down :-( By the time I'd finished with that tree though the clouds had moved across and the effect had vanished.

I do love those light rays.
