As I’ve said before, sometimes corners of New England feel like they’re a little bit stuck in time. So, imagine my pleasure when I see the 1950’s car, beside the 200 year-old inn, beyond the gnarled limbs of this Crab Apple tree? Fortuitous indeed :)

Taken November 2012 — Prescott Park, Strawberry Banke Historic Site, Portsmouth, New Hampshire, USA

Equipment used:
Canon EOS Rebel T3 (handheld) ~ Canon EF 18-55mm lens (@25mm) ~ UV Filter

This is a three-frame bracketed HDR, tone-mapped in Photomatix, converted into monotone and tweaked in Corel PaintShop Photo Pro X3.
