It’s the Day After Christmas. Are You Sure?

Yesterday, my dad and I went for another forest preserve hike. It looked more like the day after Thanksgiving than the 26th of December. Little ice was present, and we had no snow at all. I was going to do a straight interpretation of the photos, but I just bought Lightroom (bought, not a trial), and the simple form and texture images seemed to lend themselves to a split-toning experiment.

The reflection of the trees was not split-toned. I liked it better with the gradation from light yellow to blue.
