Like it's hard to explain and there might not be a lighter background option - if so that's all good but ultimately I'd always aim to go the lighter the better! With overcast skies it's best to keep a brown background as opposed to dark trees as... it makes things gloomier and more depressing haha. Still cool though! I think the crop is tight so if I were doing it I would stand further back so there's a bit more wiggle room at the top.
    Unfortunately, this was the only side I could photograph it from (I would've been narrowly viewing it between metal posts from the otherwise). I do agree that a lighter background would've looked nicer though. I would've loved to see those out-of-focus orbs of light come through more. Sadly, when taking pictures of things in nature, you often find yourself having little control over the situation.

    Thanks for the suggestions! I'll try to keep those in mind in the future. Not too much of interest out there this time of year, but hopefully I can capture some nice shots next spring! I'll still try to post at least one of my older photos each week though.

    EDIT: To avoid double-posting, here's my next pic.
